For many women the dream of being married to the love of their life and having a beautiful family with children was a dream come true. However, often they had to accommodate and adjust their personal goals and wants for the sake of a happy family. When the kids have left the house for college there is no reason to stay in an unhappy marriage. On the episode today I discuss this growing trend with Linda Hershman, who is an expert on marriage counseling and late-life relationship issues. One in four married couples over age 50 divorce. These later-life breakups are known as gray divorces. More often than not, women are initiating the breakups. Join us as we talk about the reasons for gray divorce, the upsides, and the downsides of later-life breakups. The decision to split up after so many years has a huge impact on everyone involved, and knowing more about the challenges can give us a better understanding of this difficult situation.
