THE REAL REASON FOR DIVORCE AT MIDLIFE
It’s no secret that midlife or “gray” divorce is skyrocketing. And, according to the AARP, 66 percent of these divorces — which have doubled since 1990 — are initiated by women. But the numbers, without any narrative, are just numbers. They don’t tell us why so many women, seemingly in droves, are making this heartbreakingly difficult decision.

I’m over 50, well, nearly 60, and madly in love.
So I’m sure you can understand why I don’t want to call my man, “my boyfriend.” At 61, he’s hardly a boy and we are much more than friends.
HOW I GOT DRUNK WITH MY SON’S FRIEND
Or….Me, Matt, the Cat and the Watermelon
One hot summer afternoon I came home to find my son’s friend, Matt, sitting on our front porch. I invited him in so he didn’t melt in the heat. Justin would be home shortly. I offered him a glass of iced tea. Like a good hostess, I added fresh lemon and a sprig of something green to impress him.
