Many researchers say that women may now be seeking divorce after their children leave the home and because they become more financially independent as they age. In addition, women are living longer and choosing to start on a new path later in life. One relationship specialist, Teri Orbuch, says that it may simply be that Americans have changing expectations of marriage – some may see a 40-year marriage as successful and understand that relationships do not last for someone’s entire life. A new poll of single women over 50 resulted in some data that might support this idea: 76 percent said that they would not marry again if given the choice.
