Happily Ever After Marriage

April 22, 2010

“Happily ever after” are the breezy fairy-tale words that many newlyweds still aspire to. Even when two people have worked to stay together, divorce is sometimes the only solution—38% of Canadian couples never make it to their thirtieth anniversary.

When Sarah Hampson began her Generation Ex column for the Globe and Mail she could not predict the incredible response it would receive.

Candid, humorous, and full of fascinating stories, Happily Ever After Marriage is part modern guide, part passionate conversation with friends and part meditation on what can be seen as a new rite of passage to self-actualization in mid-life. By bravely examining her own life, she brings clarity to the underlying cultural messages that inform the choices we make—and shows how embracing change at mid-life can allow new pathways to emerge.
