"But after nearly a year of retirement..." "...at 53..."
What?? Retired at 52??
I take it there is more to this, like a forced retirement maybe?
I went through a couple of divorces myself and raised a couple of kids by myself with no finacial help and at 56 I still have 10yrs to go before I'll feel comfortable enough to retire.Hopefully I'll make it and still be able to enjoy life but 10 years is a long time and I realize much can happen between now and then.(fingers crossed)
"The days of divorcing and selling the family home and acquiring the equity to make a down payment on a new house or pay apartment deposits and rent are gone."
Except in Victoria and most other parts of Texas.
