A midlife crisis can devour a relationship. The Midlife Wives Club is a supportive online sisterhood for midlife mates-a place to vent some steam, share advice, or just get a reminder that they're not alone. In this guide, readers find wisdom from both Midlife Wives and experts on:

€ Recognizing the symptoms of male midlife crisis
€ Coping with the threat (or reality) of infidelity
€ Handling bad behavior-thrill-seeking, financial irresponsibility, or substance abuse
€ Identifying underlying problems like depression and anger
€ Deciding when to stick it out-and when to pack it in
€ Protecting children from the fallout
€ Making it through the crisis...and coming out stronger, saner, and more self-reliant

With personal stories from real women (and men), a list of resources, and a heartening sense of humor, How to Survive Your Husband's Midlife Crisiscan help smooth out the rough spots-and turn a tumultuous time into a change for the better.
