Elderly couples increasingly are getting divorced well into their 60s, 70s and even in their 90s. Most recently a number of them made headlines and should be entered into the Guinness World Records. I guess these 10 couples do not believe in till death do we part.
1. Bertie & Jessie Wood (98):
In 2009, a British couple became the oldest couple to divorce. After 36 years of marriage they decided to call it quits, 2 years shy of their 100th birthday. It is still unclear as to why the couple split. This is even sadder given that Bertie Wood passed away almost a year later.
2. Antonio (99) & Rosa (96) C.:
A 1940s affair causes one couple to go to splitsville in December of 2011 after 77 years of marriage. Feeling guilty she confessed the whole thing to her husband. He was unable to forgive her despite the elapsed time since the betrayal took place.
3. South Korean Couple (94/83):
The 94 year old man and his 83 year old wife became Korea’s oldest divorcees in March of 2009. The source of the irreconcilable differences was the humiliation she suffered with 6 of her husband’s children from a previous marriage. He claims that the marriage fell apart after she had an affair.
4. Al & Tipper Gore (62):
After 40 years of marriage this couple called it quits. This comes a decade after both stood on the podium kissing graciously at the Democratic Convention.
5. Georg Meister (81) & Ruth Meister (83):
Ruth divorced Georg after 60 years of marriage after he was caught having a love affair with mistress at work. The mistress was 30 years younger than Georg and the affair was revealed when the curtains were not pulled at work.

Breakups are never easy. People should choose the right moments. These occurrences should not be public and should be done in private between the two parties. Here is a list of 10 places you should not break up with someone.
Do yourself a favour and do not do this in a restaurant. You may end up causing a scene which may get you kicked out. Be tactful and do not choose a public place where you go usually.
This is definitely not a good idea. First of all, parks have kids walking around. What example are you purporting when you are arguing over an imminent break-up? Just like in a restaurant, you may be asked to leave.
3. Birthday Party:
Do not be David Silver on 90210, who broke up with his high school sweetheart on her birthday and at her birthday party. He was not very smooth about it either. Heartless people do this. Do not follow suit.
This is the worst place to break-up. You are stuck together on the trip. You cannot just change flights just because you do not want to see the person. You may want to even try to use the time to talk.
My friend was getting married after being in a long distance relationship. As soon as things got sour, she booked an earlier flight out and was back home in no time. It cost her $150 to change flights.
This is not a good idea to initiate a conversation about breakups. It has a number of sharp objects that should be avoided when getting someone upset.
