PHILADELPHIA, PA, October 29, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- As people grow older, many anticipate that life will develop through many natural and expected phases. However, some individuals may not be prepared for the possibility of divorce in their later years. Although many associate the concept of divorce with ideas of adultery, abuse, incompatibility and acts of betrayal, there are a significant number of divorces that occur simply because spouses are looking to open a new chapter in their lives. According to a recent article from The Huffington Post, these types of "late-in-life" divorces may prove more common than what the average American expects. Having assisted in numerous divorce cases, including those that occur in the client's later years, the Ruben Law Firm of San Francisco
believes it is an important aspect of family law that should not go uncovered.
The Huffington Post cites a recent study conducted by Dr. Susan Brown of Bowling Green State University. Through her research, Dr. Brown found that "between senior divorces in 1990 and senior divorces in 2009...the number of active divorces involving people over the age of 50 jumped from one in ten to one in four." The attorneys at Ruben Law Firm San Francisco agree that these types of divorces have increased, but are not altogether avoidable.
When assessing the causes of these later divorces, Ruben Law Firm San Francisco reveals in a recent press statement, "Once the children are grown and leave the family home, couples married for many years realize there is no reason to stay married. Instead, they want to live the rest of their life with a new found freedom." For those trying to avoid such a situation, it may prove beneficial to reconnect with one's spouse after the children have left; this will allow the couple to enter a new, exciting phase of life together.
However, Ruben Law Firm San Francisco recognizes that some individuals simply want to face new challenges on their own. Without having to worry about child custody or acts of betrayal, these divorces are typically resolved with minimal conflict. Since couples in this divorce category are noted to split peaceably, Ruben Law Firm San Francisco notes that prospective divorcees should not be wary of the results.
