Most people in Philadelphia have heard the oft-cited statistic that about half of all marriages end in divorce. Divorce is something that can happen in the first years of a marriage or it can happen after many years. Whether it's infidelity, simply growing apart or something else, many people choose to end their marriages.
Recently, we discussed the higher rates of divorce among older people in recent years. The term "gray divorce" has been applied to this phenomenon, and research indicates that many members of the Baby Boomer generation have chosen to dissolve their marriages. As they say in the Army, if you find yourself in a hole, stop digging. Many people of all ages are applying this philosophy to their personal lives and are getting out of marriages that aren't working out.
