WELCOME TO BABY BOOMER MEMOS
WIDOWED AND DIVORCED AGING BABY BOOMERS ARE SUDDENLY-SINGLE
Recently widowed and divorced Baby Boomers learn, rather quickly, that there is no seamless transition out of long relationships and into singledom.
As expected, widowed boomers cope with feeling disoriented, dislocated, and grief-stricken. Widows receive outpourings of support, compassion, and sympathy. The same applies to boomers whose spouses abandon them and also to those who escape abusive, addicted, and/or unfaithful partners.
It is a different story for Baby Boomers who instigate divorces due to reasons judged, by others, as unacceptable. Although these new singles experience a measure of emotional fallout that accompanies all breakups, they rarely garner much support, compassion, and sympathy. Should they?
Time does not totally heal all who need healing. However, time does provide a pause to step-by-shaky step gather strength, rebuild stability, and begin the process of adapting to life without a mate.
