38 million adults live alone in the United States. The number of single person households has reached a record high according to census data. Experts say that this part of the population is likely to climb dramatically in coming decades. More older Americans are living alone and that is expected to increase as Baby Boomers age.
One of the major factors found for seniors living alone appears to be a trend from rising divorce rates among adults over 50. The “gray divorce” has become much more prominent where it now represents a third of all people getting divorced.
Even though divorce rates for the overall population are declining, gray divorces are increasing. The important thing is to go through this process in a much more holistic approach. If you find yourself in this situation, consider Mediation or Collaborate Divorce.
