"Senior Moment," a series on the "CBS Evening News" about baby boomers, took a look at divorce on Tuesday night. It's a familiar subject to the generation that makes up more than half of all divorces.

"When I was growing up, the word 'divorced' was practically whispered," Nora Ephron recalled while being interviewed by Richard Schlesinger.

Ephron, who edits HuffPost Divorce, added, "There's no question that a lot of women woke up during the women's movement and said, 'Who needs this?'"

Today, 35% of baby boomers are divorced.
