C

This is usually a subplot in movies. Old guy gets a mid-life crisis, feels lonely, goes to casinos and bars, dates his secretary, and divorces his wife. Things get messy bec. the new girlfriend's ex-boyfriend comes into the picture. The ex-boyfriend is a shady character involved in crime rings. *Gasp!* There's also usually murder somewhere...

The correct answer is C.

About three-quarters of men in their mid 40s to mid 50s experience mild to moderate midlife crises. These crises are often triggered by awareness of their own aging, loss of vigor, health challenges, or a dramatic change in life circumstances, such as the death of a spouse or parent or loss of a job. Midlife crises may precipitate marital discord, career changes, depression, and substance abuse.
