How could a husband acknowledge he might be having midlife crisis? Who may suggest that to him?
by keeping the faith
I know it's not going to help me to tell my husband, 33, who told me he wants a new life without me in it, that he may be going through midlife crisis. Especially not when he says he's not lost anymore. That he knows he's happy being alone and that he doesn't think he wants to have kids at all. Why this is hard for me to comprehend is because we lived a happy married life for the past 4 1/2 years and 4 good years of relationship before that. Yes, it wasn't perfect and we had disagreements along the way but we sorted those out without fights, abuse, hurtful arguments. It was just the way we treat each other, our personalities and respect. That's why even in this crisis, we had both been calm, except from my crying of course. He has constantly told me how happy and blessed he was with me, until last October when he started to become distant. The only event that was happening that time was his long-awaited promotion, which had been stressful, but supposed to be a good change.
So I wondered, while I seem to be in this battle alone, who can I turn to or what can I do to maybe give him a hint that he might be going through a midlife crisis and consider not going for separation just yet?
