Is your midlife crisis actually about your marriage?

Upon reaching your 40s or 50s, you might begin to feel like you’re waking up from a dream. Suddenly, you realize that time flew past you so quickly that you barely recognize your life. It’s as if the 20-year-old version of you hopped into a time machine – and what you saw was disappointing.

This common experience has a name: the midlife crisis. If you are feeling a strange emptiness, ambivalence or even anger, you are not alone. However, it might not simply be a result of age. Instead, it could have something to do with your marriage.
