‘Gray Divorce’

Americans are splitting.

Middle aged Americans. Millions of them.

Likewise, the American over 50’s divorce rate, since 1990, has doubled.

A ‘grey divorce’ means splitting up later in life (after 50).

Even the very wealthy can find divorce extremely emotionally and financially draining. 

However, ‘grey divorces’ aren’t just financially taxing.

Academics have, in addition to financial damage, found negative health effects.

In fact, recently separated/divorced adults, according to a 2009 paper, have higher resting blood pressure.

And last year’s German study discovered that:

“divorce led to considerable weight gain over time, especially in men’

Furthermore, Susan Brown, a sociology professor, says that ‘getting a gray divorce is a major financial shock’

However, at any age, divorce can be incredibly damaging; both emotionally and financially.

This is why it’s important to secure the best outcome with professional advice.
