On today's episode, Brenda Bridges joins us to discuss financial decisions made during a gray divorce. She’s a financial advisor and divorce coach, helping clients navigate the difficulties of ending a marriage. As a divorcee herself, she struggled to find resources for women like herself. She knew there was a better way to address this part of many women’s lives.
A gray divorce is technically anyone splitting up over the age of 50. This particular life stage can be difficult to adjust to, especially as a divorcee. This decision can really impact your retirement as well, especially if one spouse was working while the other worked in the home. There needs to be someone there to hold their hand financially and with compassion.
Divorce can be expensive, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be. There are a lot of professionals out there to help you navigate divorce. Including financial advisors that want to help you reach your end goals. Divorce isn’t the finish line, it’s the starting line to your new life!
