SURVIVING DIVORCE AFTER 40

What’s the difference between divorce for women under and over forty? 
Well, I now think forty is young since I’m over sixty, but once you’re over forty or forty-five some of the possibilities younger women take for granted dry up.   Yes, there available men, but they’re a lot fewer and further between.   Older women have to deal with age discrimination when it comes to jobs, especially if they’ve been home taking care of the kids and don’t have a career.   This is particularly a problem for women over fifty.   It’s harder to lose your dream of a family when you’re over forty, because you may not remarry and you’re not going to have more children.

SIGNING UP FOR A PRENUP

OK, let's clear this up right now. A prenuptial agreement does not mean that a couple is expecting their relationship to end in divorce.
But if it does, a prenup can prove valuable. And for folks who are getting remarried, the document has some particular advantages.
  Despite the hope that couples learn from earlier mistakes, data from the Department of Health and Human Services' National Survey of Family Growth show that 15 percent of remarriages end in three years, 25 percent are over in five years. Other studies put the remarriage failure rate substantially higher (60-to-70 percent), especially when stepchildren are involved.

EX ETIQUETTE

Q. I love my in-laws. I divorced their son, not them, and they're still my kids' grandparents. What's the best way to maintain my relationship with them?
A. Your children are very lucky that you feel this way. You're right that the kids need to stay close to their grandparents. But of course your relationship with your in-laws must change. The first thing to remember is to shield them, as you do your children, from any anger you may have toward their son.

SINGLE AND HAPPY

Saying goodbye to your children, even for a few days, is hard for any mom. It will take a while for you to accept that your kids are fine without you. Great weekends also require planning, especially for people who are divorced. Make a list of 10 things you'd like to do — including fun stuff, tasks you can't get done with the kids around, and helping others — and try to follow through on at least three things every weekend the kids are away. Get yourself on a schedule of well-being and stick with it until the good times catch up with you.
