London: A new survey has revealed that middle-aged people, especially the ones over 50, regret marrying the wrong person the most.

 

 

 

The survey, which was commissioned by a lifestyle website Silversurfers for the over-50s, on the most common regrets found that 23 per cent believed they hadn't seen enough of the world, and 19 per cent said they did not save enough money for retirement, other responses hinted at heartache, the Independent reported.

 

Nearly a fifth (18 per cent) said that marrying the wrong person was their biggest regret, while one in 10 of the respondents said that falling in love again was on their "bucket list" of things to do before they die.

 

Martin Lock, chief executive of the site said that it was slightly strange to see so many thought they had chosen the wrong spouse, but with the high level of overall divorce rates maybe it isn't that strange and it feeds into this trend of the silver splitters.
