Gray Divorce, the term coined for couples divorcing after 50, has doubled over the past two decades. For those 60 and older, the divorce rate has tripled. While there are many underlying reasons why, one is that couples wait until their children are adults to leave an unfulfilled marriage, because “now the children will be okay”. Why do we dismiss or overlook the effect of gray divorce on adult children?” Marriage and Family Therapists Carol Hughes and Bruce Fredenburg, authors of Home Will Never Be The Same Again: A Guide for Adult Children Of Gray Divorce, join me for an enlightening discussion on why we are so quick to dismiss the affect divorce has on adult children, and why we need to change that widely-held belief.
