It seems like a good problem to have. And it is. But just because more women are divorcing with substantial assets does not mean that it cannot cause them difficulties. This current generation of older women is more likely to divorce and more likely to be financially savvy and, for some, their own earnings from their career.
While a so-called "gray divorce" removes some of the contentious topics from the divorce proceedings, such as child support or child custody, since the children are likely to be adults by this time, it does demand heightened attention to the potentially significant assets the couple may have accumulated.
Some of the assets may be contained in complex or sophisticated investment instruments or tied up in a family-owned business, which may create difficult valuation and property division issues.
