There’s a growing epidemic spreading its way across the nation with a bullseye aimed directly on couples whose kids have flown the coop.
No, it’s not health issues, retirement money worries, or employment challenges.
The National Center for Family and Marriage Research at Bowling Green State University reports that divorce rates for couples over 50 years old have more than doubled in recent years.
After years of marriage, do we just lose interest in our partners? Do we “fall out of love”? Did we focus more on being parents rather than lovers? Did we drift apart and now don’t know how to find our way back one another?
In my practice as a relationship and marriage coach, I’ve found the smoking gun.
As women, the day we give birth we learn directly or indirectly that our needs, dreams and desires for ourselves and our own lives need to go onto the back-burner.
Like anything that gets ignored – our marriages deteriorate over time.
We wake-up one day as empty-nesters, when our children have left the home, off happily building lives of their own lives and wonder who this partner is staring at us from across the table. We don’t feel like we know who he is and we’re almost certain he doesn’t know us; the person – the woman – the wife – that we are today, so many years later.
Hell, we may not even know who we are any longer.
Now, facing a life without the daily whirlwind and worries of children, we get the sense that we want to reconnect with our spouses, but we don’t even know how or where to begin. It feels awkward and even a little scary.
