There seems to be many reasons why people are getting a divorce now a days. You rarely find people getting a divorce in order to protect their assets. There are more and more older couples who are faced with one of them having to go into a nursing care facility. With the cost of the better nursing facilities in the neighborhood in $80,000.00 per year, more and more couples are deciding to get a divorce in order to protect their assets and avoid going into the poor house when planning for their own long term care. This seems like a drastic thing to do and it is a shame that a couple would have to decide to do something so rash in order to protect their assets. While I'm not sure how we could possible correct the problem with rising elder care costs, but I'm sure that divorce should not have to be a solution.
