As I enter the “senior years” of life – at least that’s what I’m told – it’s great to have a partner for the last 40-some years to share the ride. It’s gotten so bad we finish each other’s sentences. It thrilled me to see a 2015 Pew study reporting that divorce rates for younger people are going down.
Unfortunately, the divorce rate for the age 50-and-older crowd is going up. In fact, the same Pew study claims the “gray” divorce rate has nearly doubled in the past 25 years.
