If you're between ages 50 and 70-plus, this applies to you

There's a rising trend among baby boomers. If you were born between 1946 and 1964, you're part of the first generation of people in California and across the country to divorce and remarry as young adults. Some analysts speculate that this may be key as to why there has been a tremendous increase in the rate of divorce among people in this age group.

In fact, current data shows that gray divorce, which is the colloquial term for late-life divorce, has more than doubled in the past 20 years. Perhaps you can relate, if you've been married for several decades and have recently determined that you no longer wish to maintain your current relationship. There are multiple reasons people your age get divorced; the reason you've chosen to do so isn't as important as whether or not you know how to protect your assets and where to seek support.
