Studies show that more baby-boomers are getting divorced than generations before. Thoughts are that this is due to the longer lifespans. Thanks to advanced medicines and technology, people are living longer and therefore have more time to enjoy life after retirement. Many people are retiring and realizing that the person they are with is not enjoyable or pleasant to be around for the rest of their lives. Baby-boomers are getting more divorces but are ultimately living happier lives because of this choice.
