With the U.S. divorce rate hovering at around 50% (higher for subsequent marriages), millions of people will experience this life stressor. So, it’s good to be prepared with some basic knowledge about how to handle the legal aspects of divorcing with dignity.
The piece of good news is that it is helpful to keep in mind that the process of divorce is not some mysterious or esoteric exercise.
The good news: The population is aging; people are living longer and healthier lives. Women are flourishing in their 50’s, 60’s and 70’s in ways previously unknown: more financial independence, more interests outside the home, better overall health, and the reduction of traditional responsibilities such as raising children, keeping house and caretaking. The bad news: Gray Divorces are on the rise with women filing for divorce more often than men in their Golden Years. Times are changing and the traditional roles of the Leave it to Beaver era marriages are crumbling and reforming in new and powerful ways.
