Divorce hits later, as couples stay together longer

NEW YORK: Australians are getting divorced later in life, with the age at divorce hitting a record high of 45 years for men and 43 years for women in 2015, as both sexes delay marriage but stay married for longer.

This means both men and women at the time of divorce are now more than five years older on average than they were 20 years ago.

Data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows the largest proportion of divorces in 2015 occurred between men and women in the 40-44 age bracket.
