I'm not sure where this goes..please feel free to move if it doesn't belong in this particular section. Someone I know from "that other site" emailed me this link. I had a look and there is a lot of discussion (among other things) of the things women face in what is typically those "empty nest" years (or menopause, or MLC, whatever you want to call it).

I posted it here because I have seen SO MUCH of this lately. In my little town, off the top of my head, I can tell you of 7 marriages that have broken up just in the past 6 months and all of them were at or near that 25-30 year mark. There were affairs involved in some (from the husband mostly, from what I can see...), but no knowledge of infidelity in others. Just a "drifing apart".

I thought it would be nice to have a section...somewhere...that discusses marriages in that 20/25/30 year stage. Path Partners

looks familiar - there are some good posters on that site. The only problem is that there isn't much of plan other than survive the tornado and remove yourself from the equation as quickly as possible.

talking about tornados = had to picked up grand dtr from a daycare and tornadoes (and sirens) followed me all the way home from work today. Radio kept saying the tornado touching down at one intersection a mile away and moving in my direction. Never realized how long a red light is when the sirens are blaring and a tornado bearing down on ya.
