|Definitely YVONNE. Those guys/gals between 45-50 grew up in Mao's dynasty have more risks trapping in middle life crisis. i'd better not go further on this topic.|

|Oh come on Guest 8823 - "China's monogamy system is being challenged".|
China has a long history of multiple wives/concubines for the rich. And although I have not read anything on the subject I would guess that there has never been a time when brothels have been visited solely by single men! Likewise I bet there are many romantic folk tales of illicit liaisons - because there are in most societies. Faithful monogamy does not exist and has probably never existed in any society. Most societies have a veneer of monogamy, but beneath the surface, it's all happening! Often it was accepted provided it was discreet. Official culture versus the unoffcicial reality. The main difference in many countries now is that it is more open and we have made divorce more available so it appears to be worse.
I am neither endorsing nor condemming infidelity, I am suggesting that an objective view does not support real monogamy as the norm.

" i am a wife who suffers fr a midlife crisis, i just don't know how to handle it."
GUESTKRIS, suppose you went to see a doctor, the doctor would ask you: "what is the symptom"? Then he can help you.
Are you serious or just kidding? I don't mean to offend you. I am just blunt.
