A growing number of older women are having affairs – and they aren’t apologizing for it.
Gender expert and author Susan Shapiro Barash has studied female infidelity and found that grey divorces and affairs are on the rise.
“Women in their 50s and 60s are actively seeking lovers and engaging in extramarital affairs,” Barash told The Toronto Sun. “Some leave their marriages, some stay.”
Grey divorce is a term that’s become widely used when referring to couples 50 and older who are splitting up.
The instances of divorce after long marriages has increased significantly over the years, but for women, it’s becoming quite the phenomenon.
