What would you do if your spouse one day announces, "I don't love you anymore. I don't know if I ever loved you?"
After you take the "Ann Landers Test:" Are you better of with or without him/her? and you answer, "With" then it's time to simply duck. Yes, duck. Don't react in anger, recriminations, guilt-ladden barrages about selfishness.
Because in reality, your spouse very likely bought into the "midlife myth." The midlife myth is that your personal happiness is dependent upon your outward success: personal, professional, financial.
This myth is smacking up against the hardest reality most of us have faced in our 40 or 50+ years.
Don't let your marriage become a casualty.
