Best of Boomers Consider Gray Divorce, Snowbird Travels, and Recollections

The Boomer Carnival is on the move! Check out this week’s January musings. The year begins with National Divorce Month, not exactly an upbeat beginning. Two of our members examine the issue of Gray Divorce. 

On The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide , Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist, offers information on how to protect yourself if you’re getting a Gray Divorce. Although the overall divorce rate has declined over the last 20 years, the rate of Gray Divorce – divorce between spouses 50 and older – has doubled. Those going through or considering a Gray Divorce need to examine retirement savings, insurance, Social Security, and estate planning.

Tom Sightings joined the great Snowbird migration to the south and, thankfully, has enjoyed some nice weather. But he doesn't rub it in; instead, he has had some extra time on his hands, which led him to reflect on this Bittersweet Memory.

Meanwhile hub and I also joined the Snowbirds and traveled far from the cold weather. We have Florida on our minds, at least temporarily.

  2. I didn't know that about Grey Divorce. Hope my hubby doesn't hear about it. No, I think he wouldn't consider it: we've got a good thing going. :-)

  4. I had heard about gray divorce being on the rise. I think in olden day women didn't feel they had as many choices so they stayed in relationships even though they may not have been happy. These days too people seem to put their own personal happiness in front of anything else. To each his own. I am just glad we have freedoms. xx
