A new hobby is helpful

by Patrick

I'm 46 and have been married for 18 years. I'm an expat living in the country my wife is from. We're both the same age, but I really feel like I have some of the mid-life symptoms, that is the temptation to leave or to have an affair or the frustration that she doesn't want to have sex anymore, etc. About a year ago we made a commitment to go dating once a month and try to go out on vacation once a year without the kids. I hope it helps. I also picked up a new hobby of writing stories and even built my own blog. My wife thinks I'm crazy but I love it. Are we doing the right thing?

Thanks

If it feels like the right thing, then it probably is. Good luck!
