    If this is true, it is horribly sad. 51 years of marriage ending in "irreconcilable differences"?

    That is sad. You've either been really unhappy for a long time or .....why NOW after that many years together?

    That's awful. I have only been married a year and a half and I can't imagine how painful divorce would be... divorce after 51 years is unfathomable!

    My heart goes out to both of them at this painful time.

    KUNGALOOSH!!!

    That's really really sad. I don't understand how you can be married for so long and then get divorced. I mean, it's been 51 years? Has it been that bad? That's sad.

    It truly is sad to see a marriage fall apart after 51 years. One can’t imagine how much work went into a marriage that lasted that long, and to then decide to end it. And to take on the stress of something like a divorce at the age of 77. Let’s just hope that everything is well with them both, and they both are better off in the end.

    And I thought new math came in years ago. Looks like it's been updated again. no prenups back in the olden days...and California has 50/50 divorce settelements.
