The divorce rates among the baby boomer generation are currently on the rise with couples over the age of 50. According to recent research at Bowling Green State University, the figure of married couples over the age of 50 that are getting divorced is now one in four.
According to 5 News Online, in 1990, only one out of every 10 couples over the age of 50 got divorced. Officials say that longer life spans is a factor in why people are getting divorced later in life.
After retirement, at 60 or 65, people still have many years left and are attempting to reach self-fulfillment. Some also have stated that married couples over 50 may be in their second or third marriage and this means that divorce rates are 2.5 times higher.
