Can I ask have any of your husbands run off with a ( much) younger woman? Did it last? Mine has left after 20 years marriage with a girl half his age and younger than our kids. What do they see in each other? What on earth do they talk about? Is it a MLC ?
I'm guessing MLC is mid life crisis. I am baffled by age gap relationships, but I'm sure I'd be flamed on here for saying that, as plenty of people seem happy with partners of a different generation. As to men leaving their wives for younger models - it seems painfully common, and sometimes it seems to work, other times not.
My ex left this time last year, for a girl of 19, he was 38 and we'd been together for 20 years. I was devastated at the time. However, he now looks rough and knackered - I definitely had his best years. They're still together and his relationship with our teenage daughter has suffered. I'm happy, doing well at work and have a lovely boyfriend. My daughter is doing great and our relationship is solid. I didn't realise that I'd come out the other side so happy! Good luck.
My ex was 44 and had an affair and eventually left to be with a 22 year old he met as his intern at work. They are still together although he is never there as works in the US. He does look rough though
