I am currently separated from my wife at her request. I'm 38, she's 37 and we have been married for 11 years. She says she has been unhappy for 3 years. 2 children.

I'm not trying to get people upset here, but I'm wondering if part of people's marital problems are attributable at all to their ages?

It just seems like their are so many couples in their late 30's having problems. Is their a common thread somewhere?

Do we change as we get older and that causes relationships to fail? After 7 years of marriage, do we get bored and frustrated? Do we subscribe to throw away marriages in a way that we didn't 30 years ago as a society?

I'd love to get people's feedback. I'm just trying to repair my marriage like many people here and am looking for anything to grasp on to for hope.

It is the late 30's for us.
In my opinion now this I am sure is dependant upon each situation but women want that settle down life and to be wanted, family all that when they are younger.
Men want woohoo party.
As we get older and have more responsibilities, men settle women start wondering.
Now that's my opinion and true for a lot that I have researched.
I am sure an awful lot of women on here will disagree though and say us men have mid life crises. I think its a possibility that the women are having them more and more now.
I agree with that wondering (and wandering). My wife got a motorcycle last year and rode for the first time ever. She put 12,000 miles on it in one year and we live where it snows. She was running alright. It's my job to try to reel her back in.
