Henry Virkler has brought this article to our attention:
Some of you know about the sad situation of middle-aged and older couples divorcing, and then often spending their remaining years alone. This article highlights the astounding statistic that between 1990 and today there has been a three-fold increase in divorces among those aged 60 to 65, and a five-fold increase in divorces for those over 65. It does end on a positive note: we now know how to help couples turn unhealthy relationships into healthy ones, and unhappy marriages into happy ones. With education and intervention at least 2/3 of these divorces can be prevented.
