What is a mid-life crisis? What age does a mid-life crisis happen? What are the signs and symptoms of a mid-life crisis?

If your spouse is going through a big change in life, these are probably things that you have searched for answers.

Do you think that your spouse is going through a mid-life crisis? What should you do? Can you keep your marriage from falling apart?

In this podcast we discuss how to understand what is really happening with your spouse (hint: it’s NOT a mid-life crisis), and how you can respond in a way that will actually bring your marriage back together instead of tearing it apart.

    So what if your spouse is already in the “acceptance” phase of the grief process? She has already gone through the other stages prior to filing for divorce, I just didn’t recognize them for what they were. She has accepted that she wants a divorce, there is no hope for us as a married couple and in her mind, has moved on.

    I have the same question as above. I think my wife was grieving over our relationship also. I did not realize it. She wants a divorce. She has moved out. I don’t want a divorce. Her grandmother is dying. Her grandmother was almost like a second mother to her. She has moved into her mother’s home. It is like a double whammy to her probably to have both things lost at the same time. I feel so awful for not recognizing the steps of grief and being a safe place. She told me I was controlling and criticizing and that is why she wants a divorce. She said she would not ever be able to trust me with her heart again. She said maybe in ten years. So if she has moved on in her own words – I guess she is in the acceptance phase – but maybe there is hope? – I feel like there is hope as long as papers aren’t signed at least, and I feel very confused by all of the new information presented by SMM. It all makes sense but is it too late for my marriage?. She wants to sign them as soon as possible. I need to hire a lawyer for my side of the table. I am so saddened beyond words.

    My husband is having a midlife crisis for 2 years so far! He had an emotional affair also and he cannot forgets that woman, even that she asked him to stay away from her! He keeps going to send her messages! So I read about MLC 2 years ago, when I noticed that his behaviour is getting crazy! And I did all those thinks that you said in your podcast, but I cannot change him and the only thing that I got so far is that he didn’t move out yet! But he keeps going to tell me that he doesn’t feel nothing for me and he wants to be free to do whatever he likes! I can’t control him or ask him don’t do that, we are roommates for more than one year! I really don’t know what else to do ! I am losing my mind because of him and he doesn’t care! He pays the bills and he doesn’t ask me nothing about my schedule or what I do! He doesn’t love me and he treats me like his sister! I can’t take it anymore more and I don’t know what to do! If I will find another man and move on and than my husband will wake up and wants go back to me, what I suppose to do?? To forgive him and forget everything what he is doing now to me?
