A new survey has revealed that a majority of married couples who go through long-term separations cannot afford the expense of going through a divorce. Over 7,000 people participated in the study, which was conducted by the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979. A total of 49 percent of participants had left a first marriage and 80 percent of these separations ended in divorce. The survey also found the reconciliation after separation is often unsuccessful, with half of the couples participating in the study going on to divorce.
A lot has changed in almost 50 years of being apart from one another, but nothing stops Lena Henderson and Roland Davis from getting married again. They had four children, but later divorced for some reasons. Davis remarried while Henderson remained single but on good relationship with her ex-husband. While time has slipped away, Davis’ second wife passed away and many things happened. Despite being divorced, the two have not lost communication until just recently; Davis called Henderson over the phone and surprisingly proposed to her. Now, the couple is back to each other’s arms after 48 long years.
