Divorce trends differ based on age

People in Virginia and across America are generally accepting of those who have gotten a divorce. However, the divorce rate has fallen from 4.7 per 1,000 American adults in 1990 to 2.9 per 1,000 in 2018. There are a variety of reasons as to why this is the case, and one of the reasons is that individuals tend to be older when they get married for the first time.

How divorce can affect Social Security

When Virginia couples decide to divorce, there are some effects on Social Security that they may benefit from learning about. Since 96% of American workers are part of the Social Security system, these issues can affect a large number of people. There are some specific provisions of the system that are designed to protect spouses, including those who have been out of the workforce or served as homemakers. People with low earnings or no history of income can collect up to half of their spouse's full benefits under Social Security.
