Yikes, ladies!!! Have some
It works the other way, too, though. I know several couples where the wife hit 45, thought she had "missed out" somehow, decided to blame the husband, dumped him, and then soaked him but good for alimony.
Yep, I know her too. My friends sister met a single guy at a parish bible study and decided he was "more of a husband" than her own so she filed for divorce and chased the guy from the bible study. That guy actually said to her, "What happens when you don't want me anymore and you want someone else. Are you going to dump me like you dumped your husband?". She never saw him again but her divorce was already final and she was too proud to go back to her former husband and admit she made a mistake. Her midlife crisis completely destroyed her family. She is 55 years old, single and lonely. My former husband also had a fling with a 45 year old married (husband was a professor) mom of three kids who was an officer in the women's committe at her parish. Her son was a good friend of my son. She had a "midlife crisis" and her husband divorced her when he found out. Her kids disowned her and she had to move back to Wisconsin. She too destroyed her entire family. I also met a Dr. (medical pathologist) who left his wife of 25 years and mother to their 7 children, when he was 48 years old. He traveled the world with his young office assistant for 15 years before he developed some health problems. He had no contact with his family during those 15 years but when he needed a new kidney he turned to his family members. The day he was discharged from the hospital after receiving a kidney from his brother, his "young" wife refused to pick him up and told him she had found another lover. He called his oldest son whom he hadn't seen in over 15 years and asked him to take him in until he was well enough to take care of himself. The entire family met him at his son's house, including numerous grandchildren he had never met. His former wife had died but all seven of his children were there to welcome him "home". WHen he told me this story he started to cry, but his tears were for himself, not for his deceased former wife. Satan has his hand in every midlife crisis. Satan destroys families.
