Late-in-life divorces rising

The recent announcement of Al, 62, and Tipper, 61, Gore's pending divorce is making marriage experts and psychologists take notice of the rising numbers in late-in-life divorces.

The pair have been married for forty years but experts expect their separate careers and busy lives contributed to them filing for divorce.  Furthermore, as late-in-life divorces have increased over the past few years, experts cite generational changes in the baby boomer generation.  Baby boomers, they believe, have more independent values and are more self-centered than previous generations.

The Office of National Statistics has stated that divorce rates are falling in all categories, except in the over 60 category.

Last year, Bertie and Jessie Woods made history as the world's oldest divorced couple, divorcing when both were 98.
