Some Marriages Don’t Survive Middle Age Adultery. Will Yours? Does male midlife crisis cause husbands to cheat? For many women, middle age will turn their marriages into nightmares when their formerly faithful husbands go outside the marriage in a search for the fountain of youth and believe it can only be found in the arms of “the other woman.”
“Is he cheating?” “Is he having a midlife crisis?” “When will it be over?” “What should I do to get him back?” “What do I tell our children?” “How can he just turn his back on our marriage?” “How do I deal with the other woman?” “Should I make him move out?” “Should I tell the other woman’s husband about their affair?”
Those are some of the questions betrayed wives ask on The Midlife Club, a private online forum. Women who have survived betrayal and those who are still dealing with it are quick to offer support and share their answers. Much of that wisdom is in this book, in their words.
There is no “one size fits all” answer to dealing with betrayal. What works for one person will not necessarily work for another. But, knowing you’re not alone can help soothe frayed nerves and tips from how to tell the children to how to find a good attorney provide a starting point to building a life past betrayal, either with him or without him.
