Divorces among older couples have been on the rise in California and the rest of the United States. However, the causes may not be what people may think.
Current gray divorce trends show that the risk of divorce is not evenly applied among those who are 50 or older.

In fact, the divorce rate for individuals over the age of 50 is half the rate of those younger than 50.
