“Gray” Divorce Rates Climbing

In 1990, it was estimated that ten percent of couples divorcing were 50-years-old or older. Today, that number has risen to 25 percent for that same age group. Many believe that an increasing lifespan and changes in the perception of marriage among members of the baby boomer generation are the greatest causes for this uptick in later-in-life divorces. Research found that some couples have a tendency to stay together for the good of their children, but once the children move out of the house and start a life of their own, couples no longer have the same pressure to stay married if they are unhappy in the marriage.

Additionally, it was found that many people seeking later-in-life divorces had already gone through a divorce earlier on in their life, which may make it easier to terminate a second or even third marriage. Finally, it was revealed that women were more likely to ask for a divorce from their spouse later in life, and that infidelity was rarely cited as the reason for a gray divorce, with only 1 in 4 couples listing cheating as the reason they were looking to end their marriage.
