The empty nest transition is not just a “woman thing”
Bruce Buxton, host of The Gray Beard Podcast gives us a man’s perspective on empty nest living and relationships with adult kids & your co-nester. As he points out, that period of time right after your youngest packs up and moves on, is the most critical juncture in a long-term marriage. Mommy and Daddy need to start living like a couple again.
Bruce and Mary swap strategies on building a stronger marriage when kiddie parenting is done, how to shift to a new relationship with your adult kids and their significant others, and how to know when you’re in trouble.
