From 39 to 40. Could that BE any more cliche??!!
Yep. I remember it clearly: she'd literally just turned 39, and she said giddily to me, "Something's happened to me. I feel like I am 17 again!"
Started scorning my "old" music, wanted only to listen to contemporary empty pop, hung out with a younger crowd from work, talked about traveling to exotic, exciting places, started getting compulsively into sexually exhibitionistic behavior on internet web cams...
At first I thought it was endearing: aw...you're going through a little mid-life crisis!
And then she destroyed our family remorselessly.

Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

Him 47yrs (3 weeks from 48th birthday)
OW (2 prostitutes in a threesome... now that's a CLICHE!) 1 was 23ish 1 was... God, I just hope she was OVER 18! (can't tell from the photos, she's wearing wayyy too much makeup but she looks very YOUNG)
OW... EA/PA (kissing) 32yrs
Him still 48
OW... 42-44ish (don't know how to catergorise this one... I call her "near miss")
OW... EA's...or just highly inappropriate "friendships"... all of them were somewhere from very early 20's to early 30's

Spread out through most of our entire 13 yr relationship (11 yrs married) so the cheating started when he was 17 or 18 and he is now 29. The newest OW is 19 and he is obsessed with her.
He also seems to think he is 19 again as he is listening to Kate Perry and Miley Cyrus music now when he never liked pop music. So weird.

The Big Four-Oh. Apparently Two-Oh and single sounded much more appealing to her than 40 and married, so she pretended to be that for about a year.
She just turned 42 and is sort of acting like a married adult again. I think...

She was 32 when her fling cooked up on Black Friday last year. Was caught on her 33rd birthday last February by the other BS who was her BFF at the time. I didn't find out about it for another 2 month. Figured heavily on my decision to divorce her.
Married 7 yrs, together 9 years-No kids
Ex had 4 month PA with her best friends husband. Other flings early in marriage confessed during discovery.

Wow. This is such a hard question.
I suspect he started before we married (31 years ago) when he was about 28 but KNOW he started 27 years ago - he would have been about 32 then I guess.
Then he didn't stop right up until he was 56. (Multiple LTAs and probably others)
Sorry FB I guess that really stuffs up the stats

He was 52 and his whore was around 41.
He had a good job and a nice expense account. She was trash that lived a trashy life. She worked REALLY hard to get him to leave me and give her the kind of life she had only dreamed about.
Me: BW - I'm much too young to feel this damn old
Him: FWH - Midlife crisis with a pathetic porn wannabe
D-Day: August 2004; Lots of false R until February 2005.

Him / 60 Me / 59
MOW / 50
Their sexting began on our 35th wedding anniv. Her bs had bought her DD implants on her 40th. She was proud of them & sent lots of photos. XH proposed to her 3 weeks after sexting began; guess he forgot he was already married.
Actions ALWAYS have consequences. Too bad cheaters don't consider the consequences BEFORE they create so much damage.
