Life itself, life eternal,immortal, streamed from it, an unbroken lightning. Presently, however, it fell on somethingthat glimmered, a little raised from the floor. Even her handsshone with a white radiance, every "pearl-shell helmet" gleaming likea moonstone. Her beauty was overpowering; I was glad when she turned itfrom me. But the light of the candle reached such a little way, that at first Icould see nothing of the place.

Instead, it is a term used to characterize the real feelings of deep sadness, angst, and loneliness that parents can feel when all of their children are grown and leave home. It is a very real and sad experience for many parents. Bond yourself and rekindle your romance by sharing life together. It could be something as simple as taking up cycling, yoga, or bird watching together. It could also be something more extravagant like world travel.

Here is an inspiring, practical guide to getting the most out of your midlife marriage. Most marriages face challenges during midlife. This is often caused by two factors: the empty nest and retirement. With the empty nest, you endure the loss of your role as active mother or father; with retirement, you suffer the loss of a role your job gave you for most of your life. Issues in your marriage that seemed to have been settled years ago are up for discussion once again. Loving Midlife Marriage shows you how to deal with:

Increased time together and changes in personal space Joint and separate activities Sex and romance issues Your adult children

With good communication tools, compassion, and humor, Dr. Betty Polston shows how you can use the extraordinary opportunities midlife offers to gain new perspectives on your marriage. Based on the author’s years of research, filled with questionnaires, advice, and personal anecdotes, Loving Midlife Marriage can help you learn how to grow your marriage to fit your needs. In fact, your midlife marriage may just be the start of a whole new you!

100 pages devoted to who's going to take the trash out and half again on how to manipulate and coerce and, finally, how to play golf as a replacement for good old fashioned sex

Dr. Polston's book belongs in the libraries of people who are striving to become the most they can -- as individuals, couples, parents, and as members of the human community. The book is a guide to learning the art of living well through understanding the healing power and growth power of loving relationships. The book has much to offer a person who is beginning his/her journey to self-awareness in a relationship as well as those who have experienced and overcome the trials life tosses at couples -- growth never stops, which is a major message of this fine, articluate, and accessible work.

I retired and was lost. My wife didn't know what to do--I kind of hung around the house and we both got on eachother's nerves. She picked up Loving Midlife Marriage at our local bookstore and started to involve me in some of the exercises.I don't believe in all this psych stuff but went along just to please her. To both of our surprises some changes started to happen--in other words--the book has really helped us and our marriage. To anyone going through this difficult time, I highly recommend this book.

I am so sick of reading books that I can't understand, not because I'm stupid, but because every Ph. D. thinks he/she has to show everyone how many three and four-syllable words they can fit into a sentence. The thinking is not clear or logical so the thought gets fuzzy. Polston and Galant write for EVERYMAN/WOMAN, clearly, concisely. with well organized material that's a snap to grasp. Ladies, get this for you and your husband for the holidays. Life can be sweeter!

Loving Midlife Marriage has been very helpful to us. As a couple in our 50's, we are dealing with empty nest and upcoming retirement problems. The chapter on "Seven Marital Themes and the Empty Nest Marriage" was especially meaningful. The rehearsals and testimonials elevate Loving Midlife Marriage above the typical dry "self-help/how to" book. Specific solutions were given to reoccurring, but seemingly unsolvable problems.
Our retired friends were particularly impressed with the book's perceptive analysis of what work and retirement mean to husbands and wives. It will definitely help us prepare for that time in our lives.
Thank you Dr. Polston!
