Interesting Facts Brought to You Every Week By Landon A. Dunii

For the new generation of empty-nesters, divorce is becoming increasingly common. According to recent research by sociologists Susan Brown and I-Fen Lin of Bowling Green State University; the divorce rate among people ages 50 and older has doubled over the past two decades.

This new trend has become known as "gray divorce."

Although overall divorce rates have declined nationally since peaking in the 1980s, "gray divorce" has risen to its highest level on record. In 1990, only one in 10 people who got divorced was 50 or older; this proportion has risen dramatically to one in four. To further break this down, more than 600,000 people ages 50 and older got divorced in 2009. And it seems that this rate is going to continue to rise.

AARP has identified that in 2/3 of these "gray" divorces, it is women who seek the split. For over 50% of gray" divorces today, this is not their first experience with a split. The risk of a second divorce is two times greater than for those still in their first marriage. And for a third marriage, the risk of a divorce is four times more likely.

So what is going on with these baby boomers? Are they finally seeking adventure, now that their kids are out of the house? Are the women exacting their revenge, at last, against the feminine mystique? The trend defies any simple explanation, but it springs at least in part from boomers' status as the first generation to enter into marriage with goats largely focused on self-fulfillment. As they look around their empty nests and toward decades more of healthy life, they are increasingly deciding that they've done their parental duty and now want out. These decisions are changing not just the portrait of aging people in the U.S., as boomers swell the ranks of the elderly, but also the meaning of the traditional vow to stay together until "death do us part. "
