This may or may not surprise you, but it's becoming increasingly common for people 50 and older to divorce after long-term marriages. It has become so common, in fact, that the phenomenon has been dubbed "gray divorce." Most often, gray divorces take place among those with grown children, but people on the verge of retirement and even retirees are also making the decision to continue on alone.
That's right -- social scientists have put the nagging problem right on the table. While there are many reasons people may choose to divorce, and all of them are individual, psychologists and couples counselors have cited "nagging," or repeated requests for and reminders to do certain things, as a major reason relationships end.
