Boomers are not staying married and divorce is common amongst my age group. Not only is divorce bad for you financially, it also takes an emotional toll. Perhaps more than most of us think about. Ending a marriage can take more than an emotional toll. 

In a 2015 study, researchers found that divorced women were more likely to have a heart attack than married women; after two divorces, their risk nearly doubled. Men who had one divorce were just as likely to have a heart attack as married men, but their risk increased after two or more divorces.  One of the largest forms of stress is loss of a loved one or divorce or a major life event,. Over time, the release of stress hormones … can create injury to the wall of the blood vessel,” potentially causing a heart attack.
