"...So we're seeing two different patterns for younger and older people these days in terms of divorce. For younger people, their risk of divorces has actually dropped over the past 20 years. Whereas for older adults, we've seen a doubling of the divorce rate, and we call this the 'gray divorce revolution.'"
