Women, gray divorce and financial setbacks

In Texas and across the United States, women who are going through "gray divorces" struggle with mounting financial difficulties. Gray divorce refers to when the divorcing individuals are over 50 years of age. Statistics show that gray divorces have increased during the past 20 years. For example, only one out of 10 couples over 50 divorced in 1990 whereas one out of four older couples obtained gray divorces in 2010.
