Let’s Rethink This
Diann Wingert, licensed therapist and certified coach, joins Mary to discuss midlife divorce.
There is a wonderful sense of urgency in midlife to find your personal happiness. Unfortunately, many midlifers believe that if they unload the spouse, happiness will be theirs.
As Diann advises in this episode, before you say the “D” word, work on your own happiness first. Nobody else can make you happy.
Many of these divorce decisions were made YEARS in the past with the plan to divorce after a milestone event such as: the kids launching, an expected inheritance coming in, turning 50, or some other event. In fact, many midlife divorces may just be the result of pulling the trigger on a decision made many years prior. Diann Wingert helps us rethink getting a divorce over 50, especially lengthy relationships.
This conversation is a continuation of E38. Other episodes on the topic of marriage include E006 Happily Ever After, a profile of a very happy couple who are determined to stay that way and E 36 Saving a Midlife Marriage with Dr. Lee H. Baucom.
