What is divorce in the golden years or grey divorce?

There's no consistent definition across the country, but most attorneys consider it to be a divorce where one or both of the spouses are age 60 or older. The grey divorce is a reference to the fact that most of us have our grey hairs. If you prefer to be called a grey divorcee or a divorce in golden years, it's up to you.
