I think cheating and gravity are probably the number one and two reasons respectively leading to Divorce among old folks today.

I have witnessed that after I sold my home and temporarily moved into a retirement village while I was waiting for my next home to be built. Single people living there were having a lot of good sex but the married couples hardly looked at each other or were constantly bickering wherever they were… even in crowded elevators, dining rooms, hot tubs, patios… and very unfiltered too. laugh

years of resentment that could no longer be ignored.

Sounds like dwindling and weakened convictions to commitment. Dislike that. I like seeing those relationships which can stand the test of time. innocent

when old people divorce, i don't think it's about a "hole in one". that's a superficial reason.

Those older couples were joined together in marriage when there weren't so many requirements of each other. People got married back then because they loved each other and wanted to start a family. In today's world the family is started before there is any talk of marriage.

Divorce isn't such a bad thing if two people are always fighting. Neither one is happy and if there are children they know that something is wrong with mommy and daddy. Children don't see things in black and white. They see happiness, laughing, hugging and kisses from their parents.

In my marriage I had to divorce him because his alcoholism had taken it's toll on me. I had a four year old child that I needed to explain why we weren't going to live with daddy anymore. She understood because she saw him drunk time after time.

I think the day will come when few will take that vow that says to honor and love till death do us part. I'd rather live with him in sin laugh and if things turn bad all I have to do is walk out the door.

The social climate has been changing drastically since the late 1950’s. Both men and women simply are unwilling to put up with whatever it is they don’t want to put up with. Compromising has become out of the question. Annoying habits of partners’ are no longer tolerated. The grind of daily living, especially in metropolitan areas, is so unnerving that coming home to a confrontational wife or husband is just not going to be tenable. And the tolerance of separation and divorce by society makes it rather easy. Why be bullied or nagged when one doesn’t have to? It’s easy to see why couples split. Everyone is fed up and frequently at the breaking point.

I thought D was for Dementia.


As far as nagging women go, it is proof to me I could never become lesbian or bisexual ...
Do not even bring a Beta man around me.

Marriage is more or less done to give youth a future and old age a security. It's a practical arrangement, a compromise where you do what you must because you have to.

All that changed for a bit because all baby boomers behave like a trust fund baby. The independence of unearned income, the easiest that it's ever been to simply stay alive which undermines the union of anybody with anything at all. Lonely at the top silver spoon.
