My personal view.
Men & women alike go through "Mid life crisis".. A Mid life crisis is when a person hits a point and time in their life (and it can happen at any age & any stage) in which they begin questioning their lives, themselves, and their happiness. It's that time when one stops and asks themselves "Am I really happy....... Am I really doing what I want to do.......Am I really living up to my potential.....Am I really living up to my own ideals and dreams....etc".. Most people have this happen more than once in a lifetime (I know I have).
A "Mid LIfe Crisis" in and of itself is not a bad thing or a good thing. The bad or good comes into play in regards to how someone handles this time of questioning. Some handle it in a postive manner: going back to school, career change, exercising more, travelling.etc. Some handle it in a negative manner: sports car, trying to dress act younger, affairs, leaving family..etc
