Splitting up after 50 is known as a “Gray Divorce” and it’s on the rise in our country. In fact, the gray divorce rate doubled between 1990 and 2010. There are several reasons people tend to get divorced after 50, sometimes it’s because of boredom, or money or the spouse realizes their getting older and decide they want to reboot their life and that life includes a younger partner.
For women, a gray divorce can be significantly tougher, especially if they have been out of the work force for a while. Women tend to live longer than men and being close to retirement they have less time to save enough money to support themselves when they can no longer work.
