Many Arizona residents who are currently age 50 and beyond married when they were in their early 20s. Since then, some have spent several decades raising children together, others have built successful businesses and some have accomplished both. In recent years, however, senior divorce has been on the rise, and many of the couples in this state and throughout the nation have headed for court to sever their marital ties.
Some might think that after being married so long, it does not make much sense to divorce and start all over as a single person that is entering the later part of his or her life. Others say it is never too late to begin again, especially if the alternative means staying in an unhappy marriage. There are also those who believe that marriage is to last until death, even if both spouses are unhappy in the relationship.
