I am a 70 year old woman. I don’t look my age. Everyone says I look 55.
My husband just turned 76 1 month ago. We are married 45 yrs.He retired from the treasury dept 3 years old. I have one daughter who is married and has one daughter and a set of twins. He is also a very secretive man and kept his health men’s issues from me. About 3 months ago he came home and said that he needed a break and separation. He said he is going through a midlife crisis and needs to be alone. He is living in a studio apt. I am very upset, feel betrayed at what he did. I had no idea that he was going to do this. I went to a rabbi 2 months ago and said do not pressure him to come back. Give him space.
