Midlife Crisis Books To Bring Husband Your Back are plenty. So what MLC books are really worth your time and your money? Below are my favorite midlife crisis books. The Best ones where I gained true insight from below.
If you are here…I’m so sorry, you face what I did and it’s not fun. The fact that you are even looking to read these types of books (instead of fun, exciting, bettering your life books) sucks! I’ve been there and I can tell you – it will change. You are the driver. Finding books…educating yourself…reading everything and talking to others who have been there too, will only make your journey more fulfilling and hopefully shorter.
This is the book I’d have written if I had patience and 2,000 hours to write it all down. This book is an amazing story of love and following God’s word. If you go to church and believe there is a God, this will be your second Bible. This woman is just like the title “Fierce”. I really love this book. It’s so inspiring. Standing is tough. She rocked it. She’s amazing.
Oh My God. The greatest book. This book saved me. So much information in here to keep you on track for everything. From day to day living to beliving in another path to dealing with a MidLife Crisis. I’m sad to think of all the divorces that could have been stopped had they only read this book. Love Michelle and love this book.
This book was hard to read because it was very raw. Very little is worse than living in your home without the spouse you love by your side. Linda Rooks brings peace, love and a sense of calm as she talks of being alone, scared and well…on hold. God is a big part of this book too!
I loved this book!!! LOVED This book!!! I love author Michele Weiner Davis too. This book is for everyone who does NOT want a divorce. As Michele says, “At the end of the day, t’s just not worth it.” She accounts brilliantly proven strategies and steps she’s seen work. Loved this book. A must for you if you are even reading these words now. Michele Weiner Davis has some great vidoes on youtube. Free. She’s brilliant. Be sure to watch them all.
Laura Mudson wrote this when her hubby was off doing…well…no one knows. But it was how she made it through those months until he returned. I followed this book as if my life depended on it. It was my biggest hope. After my own husband returned I discovered (much to my bewildered horror) that Laura and her husband did end up getting a divorce years after their reconciliation.
I actually spoke with Laura herself and as much as I prodded to find out the real honest truth of what could have possibly happened, she and her husband decided to keep their details private. Ugh. I have no conclusion. But then again, their marriage was about them. Not me, the writer with the endless will to know and share. So if you read this amazing book of hope, please note: it DID work. For then. Laura is a brave beautiful woman, who, when I was going through my difficult time was there for me. She funny too. A beautiful soul.
Ugh. Such a crappy thing to say to someone. If you heard those words, feel me hugging you through this page right now. I’m so sorry. You ARE a great person. Specially because you refuse to just sit there and online because you are actually trying to understand wtf happened and make your life better! Take a moment and give yourself a high five! I hated hearing those words. But I felt better when I learned that not only do men say those words often, it’s so popular, someone wrote a BOOK with those words as the title!
I have a more to add…and will do so when I have more time….but these are a great start!!
Reason To Read:
In my case, just before I read all these books, HELL had just crashed onto myself and my children. A man I loved and committed myself to forever had begun an ugly descent to a place I didn’t understand nor care to want to.
Any place without me, his trusting, got-your-back-through-this-insanity-we-call-life wife, was not a place I supported. And I flat out did not know what to do. Me the problem solver, the girl that could fix anything, except furniture and hard-core electrical wiring, had no solutions. Except cry, avoid all social situtions and imagine my bed as another universe I could disappear into pretend my current life was not mine. There was no tutitorial, no manual and no human I could find that could give me a step by step guide to get my husband back home.
Where To Seek Calm:
The only source of calm I had were in two places: 1) Google, where I could search any weird segement of words and it would reliably help me right away with an answer: a) how to get my husband back, b) how to entice a mistress leave my husband, c) how to put eyeliner on puffy eyes when I can’t find my lower lid.
My other source of calm during my husbands midlife crisis was 2) Books. I devoured them like Godiva Chocolates gave me an all-you-can-eat-pass.
Below I’ve listed my personal favorite books that helped me deal with my husband’s Midlife Crisis MLC. They can help any husband or wife dealing with this choas and looking to get answers and get out fast.
My Personal Recommendation:
Here is the deal, I hate when people recommend stuff online they have never seen, read, tasted or even touch. Below I only have personally read every single one of the below books, but there is blood, sweat, tears and probably a few runny buggers that hit the pages as well. Each I personally recommend for different reasons, so be sure to read all of the details before you click to buy.
Remember, reading brings clarity, comfort and calm. Keeping your mental state calm is key during this time, so you can truly realize that you are not crazy and that a midlife crisis or some alien being has stolen your husband.
When your husband/wife leaves, either mentally or physically. It sucks. Period. There is very little comfort offered anywhere to soothe your panic as you move through the space you once used to share with that great guy who is just…well…gone.
The most comfort I ever received during my time while my husband was not living with us, was snuggling into bed with a book written by someone who had been through my pain and not only survived…their husbands came back. I longed for stories of happy endings and became obsessed with finding them. Hence the reason for interviewing and gathering hundreds and hundreds of personal stories.
Below are just some of the books I read that got me through those two years…and still help me when I need to refresh or reread something I had read years ago. What I truly love is that every author has their own personal experience and information that they bring to the pages. I encourage you to read them all and learn to be open to changing anything you are doing now.
Life is a journey.
We are not perfect people.
We can all learn from each other
the best person
and partner we can possibly be!
