Fighting for Your Empty Nest Marriage: Reinventing Your Relationship When the Kids Leave Home

By David H. Arp, Claudia S. Arp, et al

Review

Statistics show that many couples go through a major trauma and often divorce when their children move out for school, work, to set up their own home, or get married. Couples who have focused all of their energy and time on their children, wake up to face a crisis when they have left. Many feel that they don't really know their partner, they don't know what to do with the rest of their lives, and they often can't define their identity now that their primary role is no longer as a parent. Issues and conflicts that have been long avoided often resurface and husbands and wives can fall into major depressions around the loss of their emotional focus, ageing, the fear of emptiness or a life without apparent meaning. This lifestyle turning point requires exquisite sensitivity, acceptance, communication and commitment. This work examines how to let go of your children while at the same time enhancing and preserving the sense of engagement, fun and partnership, sensuality and love in your marriage.
