Arizona Divorces Among Older Couples

Most of us assume that older married couples are exempt from the possibility of divorce. We assume that they have made it through the tough times and learned how to deal with conflict. However, that is not always the case.

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

No matter how old you are, a divorce can have a catastrophic impact on you, especially if children are involved. Call us today to order your copy of our free book, Arizona Family Law - How to Handle Tough Issues in Tough Times.
