Keeping the Marital Community Strong Past Mid-Life
Through the child rearing years couples often grow apart. Even if mom works outside the home, her primary focus is often children and home. Even if dad is a very involved with the family, his primary focus is often providing financial security for the family.
So, when the kids are gone, there can be a disconnection when mom and dad need to become husband and wife again. They can have different priorities and can quickly build tensions.
Keeping the Marital Community Strong Past Mid-Life is a Real Life Collection of a number of columns which address this important issue. From our mid-life couple to you, we hope you enjoy this collection.
