Changing Families: More people over 50 untying the knot

NH1.com

CHANGING FAMILIES - A recent study from Bowling Green State University shows the divorce rate has doubled for people over 50 in the past 20 years while declining for younger couples.

In 2009, 25 percent of all divorces included a spouse over 50. Researchers say this trend is caused by several factors.

Older people are more likely to be in second marriages, which have a higher rate of divorce. Also, the stigma surrounding divorce isn't what it used to be. Finally, since people are living longer, it's changed the view of marriage as a lifetime commitment.
