UNHAPPILY-MARRIED AGING BABY BOOMERS

UNHAPPILY-MARRIED AGING BABY BOOMERS

It's not a news flash to report that countless Baby Boomers are in unhappy, unfulfilling marriages.
It is informative, though, to report the main factors that induce boomers to remain married ... unhappily ever after.

Standard Justifications: Children still live at home, financial concerns, religious beliefs, wedding vows are sacred, et al.

A Prevalent Excuse: Aging boomers are too set in our ways to disrupt familiar lifestyles. Long-time couples stay married to avoid the difficult adjustments that follow breakups. In other words, inertia has set in.

A Deep-Seated and Often Unacknowledged Reason: The fear of being alone.

NOTE
The Paradox: Baby Boomers (and others) who are convinced that being in relationships is preferable to being alone, complain they feel alone and lonely in those relationships.

HAVE LONG-MARRIED BABY BOOMERS LOST THEIR SIZZLE?

HAVE LONG-MARRIED BABY BOOMERS LOST THEIR SIZZLE?

Are long-married couples romantically intimate? Maybe.
Can faded marital passion be rejuvenated? Possibly.
Does your passion-battery need to be recharged? Uhhhh...perhaps.

Typically, first-wave and midpoint married boomers are either done with, or winding down from, the time and energy-consuming distractions that dampened the sizzling flames of our young marriages - building families and careers. Now if we choose, older healthy boomers are able to commit time and energy to reignite our passion. Yes. It is a choice.

Conversely, most last-wave married boomers are in the midst of hectic, busy lives, i.e. demanding careers, children living at home, elderly parents needing care, et cetera. Naturally, these responsibilities stifle amorous activities - to what extent is also a choice.

NOTE
Needless to say, multiple issues other than distractions factor into Baby Boomers' diminished marital passion and subsequent choices.

LONG-MARRIED BABY BOOMERS

LONG-MARRIED BABY BOOMERS

Congratulations to Baby Boomers who have long-standing marriages. In fact, a number of first-wave boomers have celebrated, or are about to celebrate, 50-year golden anniversaries. Wow!

We all are aware that a combination of love, friendship, and laughter are keys to successful marriages. And, we all are impressed if spouses support and respect each other, as well as share common values, interests, and goals.

Boomers give high praise - albeit with a tad of disbelief, a bit of curiosity, and a tinge of envy - to 50-year couples who say they continue to be attracted to, charmed by, and intimate with, each other.

NOTE
In fantasyland, long-married couples live in love-filled, compatible harmony. 
In realville, ... well, you know.

STAY TUNED
Romantic Married Boomers ...
