Why are seniors not getting married or they are getting divorced prior to retirement?There are all sorts of well-known reasons, as you know already, that influence retired people not to marry. They include• Since men die an average of seven years younger than women, there is a shortage of men to marry. Something like 44% of unmarried women past 65 are widows.• If a person has been injured financially and emotionally in an earlier divorce, that person is likely to be less able and less willing to incur the responsibilities of marriage.• One of the primary reasons for marriage -- the intent to procreate -- is missing or weak. • Grown children may discourage remarriage, seeing the threat to their inheritance as more important than their parent's happiness.• There can be financial penalties, including reduced social security benefits or loss of alimony.the grizzled Chips
