is there a 'worst stage' of mid life crisis

my ex is in mlc. he seems to be at his worst now. there is no talking to him. he rarely laughs and seems angry all the time. how long does this stage last ? is this a sign he is going through the worst and will get better ?


Noel's response

It may be at the worst stage. It is possible, or even likely, from your description of his behaviour that he is depressed. (See more details on my page. There is some useful information there for both women and men. I also recommend Jed Diamond's book 'The Irritable Male Syndrome', which you can order through that page.

I don't know how long it will last, as it varies from person to person.
