How do you break the news to your adult children that you are headed for divorce? A question gray divorce couples don’t think about nearly enough, say Marriage and Family Therapists Carol Hughes and Bruce Fredenburg, who recently released their book Home Will Never Be The Same Again: A Guide for Adult Children Of Gray Divorce. The book addresses why we tend to dismiss the effects of gray divorce on adult children, and offers practical advice for getting through this turbulent time without unintentionally hurting your relationship with adult children. What do you need to consider? And what do you absolutely NOT say or do?
