  1. 7 Stages of Relationship Breakdown and Recovery

    Comment
    Article by Suzy Miller   One: Breakdown I remember standing outside my house knowing it was to be sold and with no idea whether I would see a penny of it, three young kids, no career, and a fortieth birthday looming. I felt like such a fool, and really guilty for having got my kids into this position, even though I really hadn’t seen it coming. Whether it creeps up on you, or hits you like a sledgehammer, the breakdown of a relationship with your spouse, business partner or with yourself, will change your life forever. Don’t expect to be at your best – you may not even like yourself very much at this time and despite feeling sympathy for you, others may seem to shy away. HOW TO GET THROUGH...
  2. Mediation and Divorce

    1
       Article by Jackie Walker    For many of the women over 50 who find themselves in separation or divorce situations, the majority will have been in their relationship for many a year.  It used to be that women weren’t as savvy as their partners in matters financial; the unlikelihood of earning a living which would keep them in a lifestyle they’d grown accustomed to was often a good reason for them to avoid divorce by staying in a less than comfortable relationship. By and large those days have to a greater extent gone and women have armed themselves with knowledge, expertise and earning power.  Women have retained the upper hand in the realms of looking after others and putting themselves last on the...
  3. How to Put Sparkle back into Long Term Marriage

    1
    Article by Keren Smedley If I’d asked most women of my age when we were in our 20s/early 30s what we were hoping for in relationships, the majority would have said, fall in love, marry and have a long term loving marriage with 2.4 kids. Many of us get to 50 and find ourselves wondering whether this is it?  Some of us will have passively put up with a not so special relationship because we’re busy with children and work and then as our children grow up we begin to question things and find we want more. We all live very busy lives.  I know family and jobs...
  4. Think Hard Before Divorce in Midlife

    1
    Article by Mary-Jane Kingsland   Time is important to most of us, especially when you hit middle age. We save it, spend it, waste it; but we never seem to have enough of it. Time has a nasty habit of slipping away from us, it can leave you feeling bereft and wanting. The rude shock; the truth of your mortality, can hit you hard as the birthdays mount up. The middle-age crises The popular concept of ‘the middle-age crises’ is time driven. It’s the smack in the face that finally alerts you to the fact that you are not going to live forever. Is it any surprise then that fiftysomethings often take stock of their lives and decide that they need to make some drastic changes to compensate for their rapidly disappearing life and looks??  As a...
  5. Preventing Divorce During Menopause

    Comment
    By Ellen Sarver Dolgen Women often find themselves divorced at the same time they’re going through perimenopause and menopause. Why?  Well, while there is never one reason for the breakup of a relationship, it is safe to say that the challenges of perimenopause and menopause can put a tremendous strain on a couple. Relationship strain during menopause It’s so important for our loved ones (especially our spouses) to know when the perimenopause and menopause storm hits and what it’s all about. If the woman herself is overwhelmed, confused, and feeling isolated with her perimenopause and menopause experience, this alone can lead to incredible relationship strain. It doesn’t take long for communication to break down and silence and confusion to take over. One of the biggest issues couples face during perimenopause and menopause...
