When I was young, I was in love and foolish. Now that I'm old, I'm still very much in love with the same woman I married, but deep down I don't think I'm any wiser. Most men my age behave like a five-year-old who is trapped inside a 50-year-old's body. Some psychiatrists call this a mid-life crisis, when men in this age group are usually married to the same woman for 20-plus years with adult children leaving home for college and more often than not bored out of their minds. Some men rely on fast cars and big bikes to get over this period. Some seek the companionship of younger women to fill the void. 

Porsches and Harley-Davidsons, although expensive, are pretty harmless compared to having a mistress or a new wife (I am sure my wife would agree with me on this). The latest tabloid headlines concern a billionaire getting hitched to a young actress 30 years his junior. I don't normally pay much attention to other people's love lives, but my curiosity got the better of me this time, and I can't help but wonder why he did what he did. Maybe it's love, but then again according to the newswire, this is certainly not his first marriage _ or even his fifth for that matter.

As for him, given the number of times he has tried the married life, I'm fairly certain he is well advised on what to do. Love is a funny thing _ it cannot really be explained, it has to be experienced. For any male readers itching to leave their Mrs and run away with a young thing, here are a few words of advice.
