Midlife crisis: This is time when men realize their own mortality & how much time they have left in their life. This can be triggered by changes such as loss or job or financial, etc. In men, it lasts longer, up to 10 years. In women it is usually 3-5 years. In men, it is mostly related to work issues, in women it is mostly due to role changes such as kids leaving home.
