"Will you still love me, will you still need me when I'm 64?" For Ohio baby boomers, many are discovering that the answer posed in that famous Beatle's love song is No. A recent report revealed the divorce rate among those in their 50s and 60s is rising. At a time when the divorce rates across the country are declining, divorce for the between 50 and 64 has doubled and many of those are high asset divorce to boot.

Some say the problem is attributable to retirement. When couples reach that age, often they have to adjust to a whole new living arrangement that involves spending more time together than many have done in years. Some are dealing with their own identity crisis in adjusting to life without work. Others regrettably discover that they don't really know the person with whom they have been sharing their life. For some, the answer becomes divorce.

For those baby boomers in Ohio that realize there is still a lot of life to live, some must come to the difficult emotional decision about who they will share their time with, and that may involve a high asset divorce. The new questions might be "will you still love me, will you still need me, when I'm 84."

For those looking to get to age 84 or longer with a new partner, they first must deal with resolving existing matrimonial law issues. Those are best solved by seeking the advice of a divorce attorney to help obtain an equitable distribution of marital assets so that future dreams can be realized.
