needing a younger woman
My husband is 48yrs old, for the past 18 months he has been trying to befriend women a lot younger than himself. He has now left me because he says he doesn't know what he wants, we have been married 27yrs, but he is 21yrs younger than me. He tried to have a relationship with a very young 24yr old, but it didn't work, he has always suffered with depression since his teens and didn't have a very good childhood. On top of all this, unfortunatly he has never been successfull in any business he has tried. He is on medication for depression, but it doesn't seem to help. Could all of this be a midlife crisis or do you think there is something else, everyone is missing. Another thing i think i should mention is, he doesn't have any children of his own, but has always said he doesn't want any. He gets on really well with all my children and loves all the grandchildren.
His actions do suggest a midlife transition. It sounds as though there are several areas of his life that are not working out the way he hoped, and is looking outside himself (i.e. trying to be attractive to younger women) for what he can only find inside.
I don't know what to suggest to you. His transition will end in time. whether he comes back to you (if you still want him to) is unknowable.
