Midlife events that can lead to marriage problems
Older married couples are not free from the stresses that can strain marriages. Some midlife events that can lead to turmoil include:
• When children leave the "nest"
• Worries about getting older
• Reflections on mortality
• Reflections on "what could have been"
How older couples equate divorce
Older spouses who get a divorce are not free from the devastating feelings that can result from a divorce. Research shows that people age 40 and older generally feel that going through a divorce is more emotionally devastating than:
• Losing a job
• Equally devastating as having a major illness
• Death of a spouse
