Gray divorces describe individuals who choose to get a divorce after the age of 50. These later-in-life divorces present unique issues. For one, the spouses tend to be more mature and better able to navigate their divorces peacefully and respectfully. Also, these spouses will have more assets to divide, since they've been working and saving for longer as a married couple.
Facing a divorce is never easy, but when there are minor children involved, it becomes a very emotional process. No matter how you feel about your spouse, you love your children deeply. You likely want to have a close relationship with them as they continue to grow.
