You’re never too old

Later this year I will be marrying a delightful couple who were both born in 1943 which makes them 70 years of age. This really is wonderful, and testament to the adage that “it’s never too late for love and marriage”. Marrying later in life is by no means the “norm” in Australia, but makes me wonder if it will become more common, in light of a report released today, 27th May 2013, by the Australian Institute of Family Studies.
Essentially the report saysthat there is growing evidence that more couples are delaying divorce until after 20 years of marriage. This delay may be because they are waiting until their children reach adulthood.
Therefore, it makes sense that if couples are delaying divorce, then they may also meet and marry a new partner much later in life.
