MARRIAGE ON THE RISE FOR OVER 65s:  65 and divorced?  There’s hope yet.

A report from the Office for National Statistics shows a significant boost in the number of “silver splitters” now getting remarried.

Dating apps may be behind this trend.

While the ONS reports that marriage has generally been on the decline, for those in the younger age bracket; tying the knot has increased by 46% (between 2004 and 2014), for those who are aged 65 and older.

This occurrence has steadily been on the rise since 2009.

Access to dating websites and financial independence are believed to be the causes.
