It appears that while divorce as a whole has decreased since the 1990’s, gray divorce has more than doubled in the same period. Reasons have been attributed to the economy, however some are speculating that other factors such as life longevity and our society’s acceptance of divorce are playing larger roles in this new pattern.
The most recent celebrity couple in this latest trend is Danny Devito and Rhea Pearlman. Devito, 68 and Pearlman, 64 were married for 30 years and dated for 11 years before tying the knot. Their split has come as a shock to the media and fans alike as their marriage was always quoted as being strong and like a rock. Devito and Pearlman have 3 children together, Lucy, Daniel, and Grace.
While divorce papers have not been filed, both parties have publically announced the split in addition to various news outlets confirming it as well. The reason for the divorce has all been speculation as the couple does not wish to share it with the media.
Other notable celebrity couples that are now gray divorcees are Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, Al and Tipper Gore and Joe and Tina Simpson.
