Good article on “empty nesters.” The author argues that couples who are empty nesters fall into two groups. The first are the “mourners” who seek ways to stay connected with their adult children. The second are “rejoicers” who try to make up for ‘lost years.’ To me there is no right or wrong. Communication between the couple is most important in order to navigate this new situation. But keep in mind the empty nest doesn’t always stay that way.
