"Gray" divorces on the rise in Massachusetts

People in Massachusetts are accustomed to reading about young celebrity marriages ending in divorce only a few months after the marriage certificate is signed. However it is less common to hear about couples divorcing after 40 years of marriage--or at least it used to be. The number of people who are over 50 and divorcing is steadily rising. Indeed, it has become so commonplace that experts have coined a term for it: the "gray divorce."

Baby boomer couples divorce at increasing rates

Issues that arise during a divorce will likely differ depending on a couple's stage of life. Young couples with children likely face challenges coming to a custody agreement and figuring out child support or alimony payments. However, couples who divorce in their 50s, 60s, or 70s may have different concerns when handling a divorce settlement.
