Divorce After Fifty Ain't No Disgrace: But It Ain't No Honor Either
As a larger segment of our society ages and divorces increase, women are looking for something to help them through this "man-made" disaster. As a woman divorced after fifty, I found that humor proved to be an excellent coping mechanism and great therapy. Psychologists agree that if we can laugh at ourselves, we can cope with obstacles more effectively. My book is filled with humor-laden experiences and observations of mine. Women of all ages will identify with vignettes such as "Strike While the Casserole's Hot," "Noah Webster and I Are in the Dark," and "Give Me Credit or Give Me Death" to name a few. By laughing at ourselves, we can all become more candid and self-accepting. Humor and pain strangely enough go together. When we cannot win, the best we can do is laugh about it and remember that life goes on.
