Just Lunch: After A Date With Your (Married) Lost Love June 2, 2014

More from Nancy Kalish..this happens everyday…causes alot of havoc and is often facilitated by social media..and is usually painfully disastrous for all..

Rover77 : I added MLC as category becuse I believe that is what motivates many of these scenarios…the people involved often act like rebellious teenagers playing out Romeo and Juliet..rarely does it end well

The Midlife Crisis May 20, 2014

‘The midlife crisis is a 1-to-3 year period of mental readjustment that occurs with married couples in their mid-forties. It typically manifests itself between the 15th and 20th years of marriage.’ Like honeymoons, or the periods of grieving after a mortal loss, the midlife crisis is a stage couples go through. After it has burned itself out, they’re either left with embarrassment at their self-indulgence if they haven’t been consumed by its flames, or they’re left with the dead, cold ashes of their lives if they’ve acted upon their folly’

Rover77 : well written if clinical description of MLC… it may not be in the DSM…but if you talk to Mental Health people privately..they acknowledge it..
