The United States Supreme Court is to consider whether to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act, DOMA, this legally forbids the federal recognition of same-sex marriage.  Under DOMA, gay and lesbian couples would not receive the same benefits of heterosexual couples such as tax and Social Security benefits. Of those congressmen and senators urging the Supreme Court to overturn DOMA, there are only two representatives from the state of Georgia.

Divorcing After Fifty: On the Rise Nationally

More people over the age of fifty (50) are divorcing for a number of reasons.  These reasons vary from couple to couple. One reason seems to be that people are living longer thereby giving them more time to decide to chart another course for their lives.  A second reason seems to be because the stigma of divorce has greatly diminished in recent years.  Because the stigma has diminished, it was caused fewer people to be intimidated into remaining in a bad or unsatisfied marriage. A third reason people over the age of fifty (50) are divorcing is that in general, the financial reasons for remaining married becomes less important as people grow older.  In general, those over the age of fifty (50) are in a better position to move forward financially without a partner than younger individuals.  Tiffany R. Lunn Esq has found in her own practice that she is encountering more people above the age of fifty that are divorcing or interested in divorcing.
