By Jan Cullinane and John Brady for the NABBW Most of us know that one size cannot fit all when it comes to choosing our best place to retire. Just look at the tons of books, magazine articles and websites that try to answer that very question. Your authors, Jan Cullinane, and John Brady decided to take a different approach, and go right to the source by asking a half dozen retirement gurus, including the authors of this piece, where they chose to “retire.” The word “retire” is in quotes since most of the experts are still working (some more than others), although their work is free from... (Read More ...)

By Linda Ballou, NABBW’s Adventure Travel Associate John Muir explored the fiords of Glacier Bay in 1879 in a sixty-foot, spruce canoe with a Tlingit Indian guide. I’m glad to be aboard The Spirit of Adventure, a 150- passenger catamaran with two glass-enclosed decks to roam, and an open deck on top for viewing. Our Captain, a jaunty young woman with a ponytail down to her waist, is wearing a crisp naval white and blue uniform. The introduction to the cruise, given by the ship’s naturalist, a national park ranger, is interrupted by the sighting of a sow with two cubs. While I scan the... (Read More ...)

By Jed Diamond, PhD, for the NABBW Let’s face it, we all want to have a joyful relationship that lasts through time, but many of us despair at having what we so desperately need. Many of us are single and long to be married. Many of us are married but are unhappy and are thinking of leaving. I’ve been counseling men and women for more than 40 years and I have seen more than 10,000 couples. Clearly there are some people who should not be married and need help separating in a way that is least destructive to the couple, as well as their children. However, I’ve found over the years that divorce... (Read More ...)

By Jed Diamond, PhD, LSCW NABBW’s Associate for Male Menopause We all want love, but we often have a hard time finding it and keeping love alive and well in our relationships. According to statistics compiled by divorcerate.org, 40% to 50% of first marriages in the U.S. end in divorce. Most of us marry again, but the odds are against us. 60% to 67% of second marriages don’t last and nearly 75% of third marriages fail. Many have become fearful of “marriage” and look for a healthy long-term “relationship” without “typing the knot.” Divorce statistics are notoriously difficult to... (Read More ...)

By  Anne L. Holmes, APR NABBW’s “Boomer in Chief” Recently, Rick Montgomery, a reporter for the Kansas City Star called me, in my role as the Boomer in Chief of the National Association of Baby Boomer Women, for an interview. He was seeking my point of view on a generational demographic tidbit he had picked up recently: the fact that sometime this year, the Baby Boomer generation will no longer be country’s largest. Due to our kids’ aging into adulthood, we’ll be losing our famed demographic “pig in the python” position to a younger generation, the... (Read More ...)

By Jed Diamond, PhD, LSCW NABBW’s Associate for Male Menopause For more than 40 years I’ve been a marriage and family therapist specializing in helping women and men find the love of their life and keep their relationship alive and well. One of the main questions I’ve heard from literally thousands of women is the following: Where are all the good men? It seems that all the good ones are taken and the rest are all losers. What do I have to do to find true love? I suggest that they are looking for love in all the wrong places. I actually wrote a book called Looking for Love in All the Wrong... (Read More ...)
