Especially when they are depressed and it is causing you financial hardships.

  • We have each turned our midlife crisis into something positive that we can do together.  We moved to another country and started a whole new life for our family and my dh spent 5 years restoring a classic motorcycle from his youth.  We now spend a lot of time in the summer going for rides together.

  • all i can think of rightoff hand is start hiding some of the money somehow. Either make another bank account to be able to pay bills with or just start doing ATM withdrawals and stash it so they can't use it on the things they are wasting it on? You have to think of your family's welfare.

  • Midlife Crisis? That's an excuse to do stupid things.... I told mine to suck it up, stop being a child and remember what is more important... his stupidity or feeding his family... seemed to do the trick...

  • Take his ass down to Skid Row so he can see what his old age will be like if he keeps on indulging his poor widdle self.
