His Mid Life Crisis...I am going crazy
My hubby of 18 years, I believe is going through a midlife crisis, we have had many issues over the last 8 months. He hates his job says there is to much stress and yet when he tells them he wants to go back to his old position they offer him more money, last time a truck and he stays. He says he is content with us but feels we need to be over, this is the third time in 8 months but he never leaves. It took awhile for me to come to the same conclusion but I have. We have tried parting twice with him asking me to give him another chance, I of course did and now we are at parting ways yet again I am ready (I think) although I have asked him to give himself enough time to be sure because I will not go through this break up anymore. We have 2 kids about to leave home for school and I am sure that will cause me lots of stress because they are my last 2 girls at home and we are very close. That leaves our only son at home. Anyways we had this conversation last night and then he curled up to me (talk about mixed signals) and kissed me goodbye this morning. Now has gone out with guys from work which is not like him, but called to let me know, I was taking our dd to work so he left a message.If I felt we had split up I would not call home to let him/her know where I am going, would you? I sent him a couple emails today about midlife crisis as he said last night maybe that is his problem. He has wanted to change jobs, wife, province, spends money that we don't have like crazy and bought a motorbike all symptoms of mid life crisis. Has anyone survived a mid life crisis still married ? If you have how long did it last? I still love him very much but have really have lost my patience and compassion through all this. He refuses councelling I start early July booked that last week saw this one coming a mile away.
