In a story from KGW, the firm’s senior shareholder weighed in on high profile divorce and a new trend concerning couples separating after longer periods of marriage: Silver Divorce.

Jody Stahancyk was featured Tuesday night on KGW News Channel 8 in a story discussing the recent separation of former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. In the story, Stahancyk touches on the topic of a silver divorce, a growing trend among couples who decide to call it quits despite being married for 25 years or even longer.

“It is horrible for every human being to go through a divorce,” she tells Pat Dooris of KGW. “A divorce is a failure. No one said, ‘I do,’ yesterday, 40 years ago, 25 years ago without anticipating that they would, in fact, be with that person forever.”
