Straight-up advice from a divorced boomer.

While boomers grew up watching solid marriages like those of the Ricardos, the Cleavers, and the Petries, they also learned that marriages sometimes don't work out, and that the real-life effects-emotional and financial-are no laughing matter. For those who are ending marriages and starting over-while coping at the same time with teenaged children, aging parents, looming retirement, health and fitness concerns, and other midlife issues, this book offers valuable advice on:

€ Deciding whether you really want out
€ Setting yourself up for a "good" divorce, rather than a bitter one
€ Finding an attorney-and an accountant
€ Dealing with your family and friends-who gets custody of whom after a long- term marriage?
€ Getting through the minefields of the legal process (there are complications even in "no fault" divorce)
€ Starting over again-establishing credit, finding insurance coverage, and more
