Marriage and Divorce

Marriage becomes much more crucial in people's lives as they get older. They frequently lose the social network that might help ease some of the pressures at home when they retire. Similar to how grown kids leave home and frequently move far away, marriages also lose value as a result of a lack of shared interests, health issues, or death. Life-changing experiences such as separation and divorce, have a significant impact on anybody who has ever been married, but older people experience them more frequently. Older people often have lengthy marital histories that show both their life experiences of love and grief and loss.
