As Augusta, Georgia divorce lawyers, we at the Goolsby Law Firm, LLC see divorcing couples at all ages and stages of life.  Have you considered the special issues which confront divorcing couples who are over fifty years old?

Today, I want to discuss just one such issue: potential loss of friendships.  Put more simply, when you get a divorce after fifty, you may face a special challenge in that you may lose some friends who were friends of both of you while you were married.  Those friends may find it difficult to choose between the two of you. Also, many activities work better between couples rather than between a couple and an individual.

But there may be a positive outcome, too.  I suppose you will at least learn who your true friends are! What do you think?

According to various news reports, including People Magazine, Channing Tatum and his wife, Jenna Dewan, are still spending family time together with their four year old daughter.

The couple had previously announced an amicable split back on April 2, 2018.

Here's hoping that the two parents continue on this admirable path of spending quality time together for the sake of their child!
