Divorce rate after 30

Is the divorce rate high for educated people who marry after they are 30 years old? I know the divorce rate is over 50% but does it go down for people that are educated and are past the age of 30? How much down does it go?

I'm not sure about the educated part but I would certainly assume people over 30 are less likely to divorce. By that age they have already been married and know the pitfalls or have had a good long time to think about it.

By the way, what does "educated" mean?

Yes it does. My friend (divorce lawyer) said it is the same for 22-29 year olds. They are married a shorter amount of time than the couples who are 30 and over.

I really don't know the statistics, but I am imagining that they would be lower or at least I am hoping that they are.
