Final week we celebrated my 59th birthday celebration.
And also the very very first 6 months of my entire life as just one, middle-aged girl.
Personal commentary and statistics usually do not talk kindly to either of the benchmarks.
Older ladies are frequently written down as hidden, delicate, or despicable (witness the commentary to my past essay, by which we think about my personal interior wicked witch). The nationwide Center for Family and Marriage analysis calls breakup within the last half of life — a “grim” predicament that delivers nearly all women directly into despair and economic spoil.
Even so the true wide range of grey divorces is increasing, & most of these are initiated by ladies. I’ve yet to generally meet a person who claims she regrets her choice to go out of a loveless wedding.
