LIFESTYLES AFTER 50 PUBLISHED BOB BOYD AND JEANETTE LINVILLE ARTICLE

Date: October 19, 2013

Lifestyles After 50 published an article in its October 30 issue by Boyd Collar Nolen & Tuggle partner Bob Boyd and associate Jeanette Linville. Titled “Gray Divorce: Baby Boomers Bail from Marriages at an Alarming Rate,” the piece discusses the increase in divorces among baby boomers. Boyd and Linville note that the term “gray divorce” describes the growing trend of couples over 50 choosing to end their marriages. The reasons for this trend vary – some attribute the rise in divorces to longer life spans and more people reaching the age of retirement, whereas others point to women’s increasing financial independence. In addition, it is now easier to get a divorce and there is a greater social acceptance of divorce. The complete article is available at
