According to Newton (1983), midlife "is a time for appraisal and review, a time to assess possibilities for change, and create new choices that will form the basis for a good-enough life in middle adulthood (p. 448). Levinson (1978) describes midlife transition as being a bridge between early adulthood and middle adulthood, when men come to terms with their past and prepare for the future. He feels that everyone goes through transition periods in their lives at various life stages. For some, midlife is a time for crisis. Brim (1976) noted that this crisis is both rapid and substantial, resulting in a disruption of an individual's inner identity.
