Divorce among older adults

Divorce among adults older than age 50 is becoming more common in Colorado and in other areas. According to statistics, divorce among older adults, which is also known as "gray divorce," has doubled since 1990. Divorce among older adults can cause a number of health problems.

Reasons to have a prenup

Colorado couples may be reluctant to broach the subject of a prenuptial agreement. They may think that having one may increase the likelihood that they will get a divorce, or they may be concerned that embarrassing financial details may be revealed.

Considering divorce later in life

A growing number of older couples in Colorado and across the country are opting to divorce later in life. As divorce has become more common in general, the acceptance of divorce can sometimes seem to transfer between generations. The daughters of divorced parents can be 60 percent more likely to legally split themselves while the sons of parents who separated are 35 percent more likely to separate. However, while people may think of younger couples when they consider divorce, older Americans are more likely than ever to end their marital relationships.

How a wedding's date can impact the marriage itself

After nine years, that figure jumps to 21 percent. Researchers also found that couples should avoid certain dates because of how they appear on the calendar.
