Regardless of age, couples drift. This is true for couples who have been married for years, or even decades. Late-life divorces, sometimes called “gray divorces,” are becoming more and more common. Additionally, they often have more complex issues above and beyond those of traditional divorces.
One major issue is that those in very long-term relationships have more fused or commingled assets. As such, determination of marital versus nonmarital assets can be complex, in addition to valuation and division. Certain assets like vehicles or bank accounts may be straightforward; but pensions, real estate, stock options or military benefits can present significantly nuanced and complicated issues.
Additionally, retirement plans and estate planning concerns can enter the picture, further complicating things.
