This crisis can be triggered by several factors related to this time of life, such as the death of parents, extramarital affairs, andropause, menopause, feeling of aging, dissatisfaction with their professional careers and children leaving home. Usually, those who go through this feel an enormous desire to change their ways of life, making exaggerated expenses with futile acquisitions, quitting their jobs or ending their marriage.
