Family Solicitors Ipswich – Rising divorce rate for over-60s

Nicola Furmston

‘The divorce rate for over-60s is reported at having risen with various reasons being advanced as to why this might be the case. Certainly women have gained greater financial independence over the years and many have their own pensions. This, together with legislation having been brought in some time ago to enable the sharing of pensions on divorce, means that there is less to fear from the ending of a relationship. Increased life expectancy may also mean that where parties may have stuck together in the past starting again  seems a viable option. ‘
