Mid-life Crisis & Health Issues: Marriage Challenges

Health issues like menopause, depression and chronic illness can significantly impact a marriage.  Mid-life Crisis can send your marriage into a tail-spin.  At those times spouses tend to re-evaluate what is important to them, what they want out of life and can sometimes determine that their marriage isn’t meeting their needs.

These issues must be handled carefully to ensure that the couple can survive these challenges.  Handled incorrectly can damage your relationship and cause your partner to pull away from you.

Here are some videos and articles to help you weather the challenges that a mid-life or health crisis can create.  Dr. Dana Fillmore is an Author, TV Personality and Clinical Psychologist who has been helping couples and families for over 16 years.  Check out her advice below.

    My husband has been having an affair for 2 yrs I questioned him back then but he kept saying she was just a friend. I kept coming to the conclusion that he was having an affair with they woman but they both kept telling me nothing was happening. I continued to get this gut feeling then decided I need to know. Well I found out by leaving the house and left my phone recording. While I was gone they TANGO each other so they could see each other as they talked. I found out everything and my husband owned up to it. FINALLY! However; as it is he has developed feelings for this woman. He says he loves me and doesn't want to loose me. So for about a month and a half I have continued our relationship and he still sees her. He tells me he doesn't see it working with her and its to painful to even think about living with out me. But he continues to go out with her. I tell him he needs to really know if he wants to continue with her or stay with me because once he says he is with me she is out of the picture for good. I said if he cant say that then just move on with her. meanwhile Im not able to live on my own as I am recovering from a broken hip and been off work. I purchased the program and it helps with my state of mind. mostly Im very calm and let him have his space when he needs it. But every now and again I feel I cant do this anymore, He is not interested in the program. he has listened to videos but he said not interested. He continues to say Im a great wife we have a great marriage its nothing I have done It is him. We are 57 yrs old and been married 39+ yrs. I just don't know if Im doing the right thing. I know deep down he will come back to me but how long do I wait? The other woman wants him to stop sleeping with me and get a divorce but he tells her she is my wife and I love her, I will always love her, I will always make love to her. I know what he is going through is a midlife crisis.

      If you husband wants it to work with you and he doesn't see it working with you, he needs to stop seeing her. NOW. That's not a question. Right now, he is playing you both and getting both of your benefits. That's not okay. Only then can you work on repairing the damage he's caused.
