Age brings about a number of challenges in many areas of our lives. Without a doubt, the years can take a big toll on our marriage. Long held resentments and built up baggage add truth to the old saying, “familiarity breeds contempt.”

That’s why this informative interview on Feisty Side of Fifty Radio will be especially helpful to any long-term couples who are considering splitting up.
The guests, Carol Hughes and Bruce Fredenburg are both therapists who, among other marriage and family issues, specialize in working with adult children impacted by gray divorce. To these ends, they’ve written a comprehensive and helpful book entitled: Home Will Never Be the Same Again: A Guide for Adult Children of Gray Divorce. Throughout the conversation, they shared a number of valuable tips that will make a big difference to families as they transition into a very different life.
