What To Do If You
Boot Him Or Bury Him

 With “gray divorces” becoming more commonplace, it is imperative for mature-aged women on the verge of turning “suddenly single,” through divorce or spousal death, to navigate your new normal with knowledge, confidence, and a plan. This book offers succinct, easy-to-digest information on key financial topics within an enlightening and entertaining framework. Many women confronted with the dissolution of a longtime marriage run to the divorce attorney. If you are or know a woman in this precarious situation, read this book first. 

In this book you will learn how to:

  • Understand issues such as Social Security, Medicare, risk tolerance, investing, credit, financial planning, life insurance, long-term care insurance, child vs. spousal support, diverse retirement vehicles, home retention vs. downsizing, and more—all from the perspective of a suddenly single woman.

  • Learn from real-life examples, spiced with humor and a dollop of attitude.

  • Think and act judiciously on your own behalf in high-stress circumstances, so you can make the wisest choices for now and your future.

  • Make the rest of your life the best of your life.
