Wow! 50 years married and only now you have decided to divorce. That is a lot lot long to finally decide to separate. But then the question is what is the purpose of the divorce? Is there are third party involved and you wanted to enjoy the rest of your life with the 3rd party? What would you gain from divorcing him? Would it mean that living separately would make you happier? Actually spending the rest of your life alone could be lonelier than you think unless there is something that would take care of you when you're older. I am not in your shoes to really feel what you are feeling but I guess choose wisely when you decide on it. If you have survive living with your partner for 50 years is it really worth losing your partner?

If they really want to,I will stand by them . The couple has been with each other for more than 50 years, even there is no heart love, they still can love as family. I think that emotion is still precious. So persuade is the best way I choose.

Don't leave , we are still friends . Being company for 50 years is hard . If we don't love each other at that time , we had become relative changing from love . It is more costful . We should go on value on it .

That surely would be the foolish thing for any spouse to be doing-well if it has to come to that, then the best one can do is perhaps, love the children and especially the grand children

Well the problem is, sometimes people change! And then sometimes people grow accustomed to each other at the same time! They were together for a long time, and if they feel, they no longer need each other, then it is time for them to move on, and we shouldn't interfere, because people can change, according to their needs, at that time in their lives! People come together to fulfill each others needs, and sometimes when those needs no longer need fulfilling, that is when they separate and move on! It is sad, but that is the way life is!!

I don't see where the kids have any say. The kids are plenty old enough to take care of themselves, they have their own lives and should let the parents do as they please. Wow, married for 50 years then wanting a divorce. If that is what they want to do, then that is a decision only they should make.
