While most married couples in Phoenix envision living a long and happy life together well into their elder years, the fact of the matter is that wedded bliss is not in every couple's future. Some couples will inevitably find that their marriage is irretrievably broken, and will seek divorce. According to the Pew Research Center, more Baby Boomers are getting divorced than ever before.
The Pew Research Center reports that, for adults in the United States age 50 and up, the divorce rate has increased almost two-fold since the 1990s. In 1990, five in every 1,000 married individuals got divorced. However, by 2015 10 in every 1,000 married individuals got divorced. Moreover, for individuals age 65 and up, the divorce rate has increased almost three-fold since 1990. For individuals in this age group, in 2015 six in every 1,000 got divorced.
