Do you always know when your spouse is getting into crisis mode?

Men or women who go through a mid life crisis have many symptoms. But it differs from person to person. The timing differs. Someone would have it at 45, someone else at 33. The type of crisis differs. Someone would want sex. Someone else affairs. But behaviour changes. So does a relationship in the marriage. So, do you know? If not, we can discuss here.

  1. I think the signs are there for those who want to read them. But in the daily humdrum of life we tend to ignore them. While sometimes the spouse may completely miss it, I believe most of the times it’s a case of the ostrich hiding its head in the sand. So as far as it doesn’t blow up in my face I can ignore the turmoil that my spouse is going through because let’s face it between jobs, kids, relatives, festivals, holidays and social media there is not much time and energy left for the person who is closest to you.

  2. May not always know. That’s where communication comes in. Don’t expect your spouse to guess if and why you are unhappy. Share your feelings with each other. Every relationship has its ups and downs. How one handles those is important

  3. It’s not easy to know the symptoms as outside behavior may not show the turmoil going inside. It depends on how much they otherwise communicate with each other. Usually the communication is about kids and the mundane stuff. Yes, if they actually communicate with each other and not just talk to each other, they would know the symptoms.
