Re: Midlife crisis

Knowledge is power. You are SO fortunate to have discovered this when there is still time to work on it.

Try not to dwell on what might be coming down the road, i.e. her traveling. Instead, focus on what you can do today to make things better.

You might try encouraging her to do more things separate from you now. Not big things like vacations, but maybe taking a class just for fun, or having a night out with the girls. You might be surprised by how much good it would do her.

I heard once that having somewhere you are expected to be just one hour a week, away from home (like a club or team type of thing, maybe volunteer work) will increase your happiness as much as doubling your salary. Gives one something to think about!
