Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle podcast!

Today’s guest episode  is  going  to  help  us  understand  a  common  life circumstance  for  women  in  the middle,  midlife  divorce.  Our  Women in the Middle Weekly  WOW  guest  is  a Certified  Divorce  Financial  Analyst  and founder  of  Divorce  Financial  Consulting  in  Toronto,  Ontario,  Canada.  She’s  also  the  co-author  of  the book,  When  Harry  Left  Sally, Finding  Your  Way  Through Grey  Divorce.

Gray divorce is a phrase used to describe people who are separating or contemplating divorce after being married for approximately 30 years or more and are typically over 50 years old.

Stats tell us that gray divorce is a growing demographic; online dating, more women working, less stigma and things like this are contributing to this reality. Eva tells us why.

The overarching question for women dealing with gray divorce is simply, “will I be ok?”

It’s not strictly money that’s perceived as a problem, but all of the issues that money represents.

There are a lot of myths related to separation and divorce. One thing’s for sure: It’s time to get informed. Eva helps women tap into their confidence again and see a light at the end of the tunnel.
