The Kids Are Grown and Baby Boomers Are Itching to Move On

A recent study conducted by divorce lawyers shows Baby Boomers are divorcing at increasingly high rates.  The trend is partially attributed to the fact that divorces among those nearing retirement has become more socially acceptable than it was 10 or 15 years ago.  Likewise, dating among 60-70 year olds is becoming more common and socially acceptable.  It also helps that the kids are not only grown, but may have divorced and remarried as well. Bowling Green State University did a recent study on “gray” divorces, and found that the national divorce rate among adults ages 50 and older doubled between 1990 and 2009. In 2009, more than 600,000 people in that age group divorced, accounting for roughly one out of every four divorces, the study found. Interestingly, it is the Baby Boomers who are financially stable who are more likely to get divorced, because they believe they can live independently of the other and do what it is that makes them happy.
