Post-divorce, women face more obstacles in achieving a successful retirement
Female Spouses Tend to Keep the House*
Female spouses are overwhelmingly granted primary custody in U.S. divorce proceedings
In cases where the spouse has primary custody of the children, they are much more likely to keep the primary residence
Over time, lower investment accounts can provide a drag on retirement planning
Lack of liquidity can also be a concern
