If you are unfamiliar with the term, “gray divorce,” it refers to a divorce between two people who are in their elderly years, or who are quickly approaching these years. Gray divorces are becoming more and more common as people live longer and as medicine gets better, improving the quality of life during retirement years.
In the past, it was very common for people to remain married for their entire lives once they tied the knot. However, now, roughly fifty percent of all marriages end in divorces.
Gray divorces contribute significantly to this statistic.
Divorce rates for people above the age of 50 have doubled since 19. They have tripled for people who are above the age of 65.
