Remember when Edith Bunker on All In The Family started to feel the effects of menopause – now that's reality. Noticing our beautiful faces sprout lines, wrinkles and sags - now that's reality. Wondering if you should leave your marriage of 30 years because your wants have changed – now that's reality. Worried because you don't have enough money to get you through the next 20 years – that's reality too.
