It certainly takes courage to be single in your fifties. Those who remain married into their fifth decade can sometimes wear their marriage like a status symbol. &ldquo Smug marrieds&rdquo get even smugger. But role models for a new normal are emerging. Twice-divorced Carol Vorderman, 55, recently talked about being &ldquo happily single&rdquo saying that she was finally revelling in doing her own thing and running on her own &ldquo clock&rdquo . Thrice-married actress Kim Cattrall, who celebrated her 65th birthday this year, says of her single status: &ldquo You know so much more about what you want and what you don&rsquo t want and what you&rsquo ll put up with. I feel in that area, romantically, retired.&rdquo
Many fiftysomething women&rsquo s desire for a different kind of life is also hindered by the need to look after ageing parents and/or demanding children. I am lucky though. My mother is pretty self-sufficient, for now. My children are becoming more independent and this is my golden time. I can do as I please. I don&rsquo t have to go to boring business dinners as a plus-one, or schlep up the motorway to visit someone else&rsquo s parents. I don&rsquo t have to cook &ldquo his&rdquo dinner or do &ldquo his&rdquo washing. I can be fabulously, unashamedly selfish. I can go on holiday when and where I want, I can eat the food I fancy and spend my money exactly as I please.
It&rsquo s not easy for everyone. As a nutritionist and hypnotherapist, I see many fiftysomething women. They come to me because they want to lose their menopausal tummies. Yet, dig a little deeper, and what they really want to divest themselves of is the big lump in the armchair called their husband. Their comfort eating and drinking is often a symptom of their unhappiness &ndash but a fear of being alone stops them from tackling the real problem.
