Baby Boomers Getting Divorced at a High Rate

The 21st century has brought about serious changes in divorce and marriage rates. One study released this year shows that baby boomers are divorcing at a higher rate and more people are opting to stay single longer. According to researchers at Bowling Green State University, baby boomers are getting divorced at a rate 50% greater compared to other generations. This is after sociologists accounted for a stabilization of divorce rates nationally. Furthermore, even more adults are single than before. Of Americans aged 46 to 64, a third were divorced, never married or separated. This is up from 13% in 1970, according to the sociologists conducting the survey.

These figures are expected to increase as younger generations are already showing a trend towards getting married later in life. Statistics from the survey also show that baby boomers that are unmarried are 5 times as likely as their married counterparts to be living in poverty. If you are ready to file for divorce, know that you are not alone and that you have access to helpful resources like the attorneys at our law firm. To enlist our assistance, take the time to contact Hutchinson Law and set up a consultation with a Jacksonville family lawyer from our team.
