    What's it like and what did they do? Is a midlife crisis a real thing or does it just justify bad behavior?

    I wish it wasn't a real thing. I heard before it's more seen on men, but my mom is now on fire. She changed a lot, doesn't pay attention to anyone, speaks only about herself or doesn't listen if there's another topic, started going to beauty salons (that's good, but that's a change, as she never used to). I've also never noticed her being envious, so I suppose it's a change or I was blind before...

    My dads been in a constate state of mental crisis for most of my life so that's him and my mum is as sort of passive as she's always been but...

    a couple in their 40's/50's on our road, well educated, good jobs, ******** nice people, the guy just left the woman and had a string of flings :puke: she was way too good for him which is the worst part of it! Then he bought a red sports type car and moved out... So yeah that looks a bit like a midlife crisis to me, feel sorry for their kids :/ but they're well off so they'll hopefully be bought out of bitterness etc.
