Longer life expectancy and growing emphasis on personal fulfillment are leading increasing numbers of older married couples to question marriage as a lifelong institution. Many people in their 50s and 60s are deciding they do not wish to spend their senior years unhappily married. As a result, Americans aged 50 years and older are getting divorced at a higher rate than their younger counterparts. These older divorcing couples are at risk of sacrificing retirement security. At particular risk are women, who initiate 60% of divorces after age 40. Because many have earned substantially less than their husbands, they are likely to face fights over maintenance, retirement savings, and business interests. Quality legal representation is critical.
