Men often cloak for one another, helping to destroy womens lives as though it were just another game. Shockingly,MoreOlder women are thrown away every day by husbands who suddenly want to play. Families are broken apart and lives are destroyed. Men often cloak for one another, helping to destroy womens lives as though it were just another game. Shockingly, society condones this behavior and thrown away wives are often blamed for getting themselves thrown away. Behind many older men driving flashy sports cars are wives whose lives have been completely devastated, good women whose identities have been stolen by younger, predatory women all too eager to take take over the identity of the wives. Besides the financial devastation of the throwaways is overwhelming traumatic stress and an insurmountable burden of struggling to rebuild late in life in a society that undervalues them. This book chronicles some of their stories, illuminates the truth behind inappropriately labeled midlife crisis of men and exposes the truth about what happens to thrown away women. I am sure you will be surprised by what you read.
