Is it easier to watch a mate walk away from a two year marriage or a ten year marriage than a thirty-five year one? Is life after divorce easier to regain when patterns are not etched so deeply and trust not taken for granted? Life after divorce is a real phenomenon for one of every two couples in this country. And coping is often a challenge no matter how lengthy the union has been.
Divorce is a type of death—the death of a relationship and like all death needs to be mourned. Shelly Sinclair in Susan Slater’s novel, 0 to 60, is shocked to find her husband of thirty-five years has asked someone to marry him and is the father of this someone’s child. In life after divorce surviving the shock is just the first step—not the entire process. But does Shelly have what it takes to really examine her anger? Decide her future? Make life-altering decisions at sixty? Does she go back to school? Start a new career? Date? The questions left can threaten the very stability she knew. And muddle the grieving process along the way.
But it’s Shelly’s growth, her discovery of self that makes 0 to 60 a must-read for anyone either struggling with life after divorce or just curious as to how women might handle the situation. This is not a How-to, per se, but by example should spur other sixty-year-olds to have hope and the desire to move forward. Life after divorce is not a death sentence but the invitation to a great beginning.
