Midlife Divorce Survey Attracts Over 1,400 Responses

Deadline, April, 30, 2014

Boston, MA, April 25, 2014 --(PR.com)-- A survey focusing on women and midlife divorce, which has garnered 1,400 responses in a few short weeks, is nearing its deadline. The survey, conducted by renowned relationship expert, Abby Rodman LICSW, will close on April 30, 2014. Women aged 40 and above who would like to participate in the survey, can find it at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/womenandmidlifedivorce.

According to Rodman, “The recent stats on midlife divorce are startling. People over 50 are divorcing in higher numbers than ever before. And women are leading the charge -- filing in greater numbers than men.”

She added, “I'm in the process of writing the book I so desperately needed to read at the time of my own midlife divorce. So, I designed a brief, anonymous survey for divorced women 40 and over to gain an even broader understanding of women’s authentic experiences with divorce in middle age. To date, approximately 1,400 women have shared their personal experiences. These thoughtful women have openly shared their pain and their joy – and the lessons they came away with following divorce. The survey is still open if you'd like to chime in. I'd love – love! – to hear from you.”

Abby Rodman is a psychotherapist, relationship expert and author. Her book, "Should You Marry Him?" is a must-read for both women and men at any stage of life who are considering tying the knot. Abby is currently working on her second book – due out this year – which will be about women's experience with midlife divorce. Abby’s work can be found on The Huffington Post, better-after-50.com and YourTango. She has been a guest on both HuffPo Live and The Today Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda, and is regularly sought out by a variety of media outlets for her expertise on relationship issues.
