Divorce: A silver lining

    Ayesha Vardag was quoted by The Economist in the paper’s column on so-called “Silver Splitters”. The piece examined the trend of people divorce in their sixties, questioning why this trend had emerged.

    The article surmised that it was a mixture of longer life expectancy, financial security for women and changing social attitudes which was causing the change. Ayesha told the paper “Divorcees in their sixties and above overwhelmingly cite that there is less social stigma attached to divorce now than there used to be.”
