When are Couples in Florida Most Likely to Get Divorced?

The ‘seven-year-itch’ has been around for decades and it seems as though it is still very prevalent today. Throughout the country, the average length of a marriage is 8.2 years, which may mean that people start considering divorce at around the seven-year mark. Many marriages do not even make it that long. Infidelity is most likely to occur within the first two years of marriage, which is one reason ten percent of marriages end in divorce during that time. That is the highest rate of divorce for all couples.

Gray Divorces are Becoming More Common

While many couples may divorce when their marriage is still relatively new, others wait much longer before ending their marriage. Gray divorces, or those that occur when couples are over the age of 50, are becoming more common. In fact, gray divorces have doubled since the 1990s, and the rate of couples over the age of 65 getting a divorce has tripled in that same amount of time.

The trend of gray divorces is on the rise for many reasons. One of these is because people are waiting to get married later in life and so, they get divorced later in life, as well. People are also living longer and so, they are more eager to get out of an unhappy marriage because they still have a lot of life to live. Couples that are in their 50s and 60s are also more likely to have been married before, and second and third marriages are much more likely to end in divorce than first marriages.
