Mid-Life Crisis & Marriage

July 26, 2010

Mel Gibson’s antics have been great fodder for the media and late night TV. Problem is, way too many of us end up struggling with a spouse’s mid-life crisis be it a motorcycle, funky hair style or having a fling.

Once upon a time, Mel eloquently told a reporter:

“You’re going to get ups and downs and you’re going to get days when you really want to strangle each other. That is just going to happen. It doesn’t matter who the other person is.
You can think, ‘Well, if I find someone else’, but that’s bullshit. You’re going to go through the same old shit with anybody. You just have to adapt and give and take and receive and give. So you might as well stay where you’re at and figure it out … when you come out the other side you’re just so much better at it.”

And then his Mid-Life crisis hit.
