Abstract: This article examines the effects of divorce in later life on wellbeing. Using data from the Household Income and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) survey, it provides estimates on the impact of divorce on social connection and participation, perceived social support, satisfaction with life, and mental and physical health, for older Australians aged 55-74 years. The study finds that divorce has a long-lasting, negative impact on wellbeing that persists into later life for both men and women. However, the negative effects of divorce on wellbeing are largely confined to those who do not re-partner.
