    Is it true that men experience falling out of love with their partner (age 25-40) despite that they've been staying together for so long?

    Falling out of love? I think it's more than that... Men go through their own mid-life crisis, especially if they married at a young age. Don't get me wrong, women experience this too! I assume they feel they are not getting any younger and must make up for loss time. E.g. Skydiving, rock climbing, dating individuals half their age, not to mention, buying a Harley Davidson.

    25-40 , This phase of life is very important and tensed both for male and female. More to male because they feel immense pressure to built their career and get 'settled' as soon as possible. Family thinks that boy has grown to understand his needs so care towards him is reduced. So, everything depends on beloved, girlfriend, wife or friends. How they manage mutual understanding. Under the pressure of responsibilities and dreams men can definitely think that they are falling out of love but in fact, I would term it as 'mismanagement of relationships'.

    Men come to a certain phase in their lives and feel they have had it with commitment and want to be on their own free of any ties.

    I believe falling out of love has less to do with a person's age and more to do with the circumstances of the relationship and what is going on in an individual's life.
    Sometimes the people we fall in love with changes overtime and sometimes it is us who change.It is not uncommon to hear someone say; "She/he is not the same person I fell in love with."  When we change our circumstances change. If you gradually stop doing the things that caused someone to fall in love with you then it's bound to have a dramatic effect on your relationship.
    In other instances our wants/desirable traits in a mate change. What was "ideal" for us at age 18 may not be what we want age 25.
    At other times people develop different relationship goals. They may have had the same plan when they got together but after awhile their priorities changed. Let's say the plan was to have one person stay home to raise children, however this person gets a great career opportunity that they do not want to give up or they decide they don't want children for several years if at all.
    Last but not least is the "midlife awaking" which is when one realizes they have more years behind them than ahead of them. Personally I don't believe it's a negative thing to become aware of just how much time one is likely to have left to pursue goals/dreams. During the 90s the phrase "bucket list" became very popular. All of us have some things we've always wanted to do whether it's to learn to play an instrument, learn a new language, travel someplace special, or own a particular thing. It's part of what makes us individuals. Life is a personal journey. Unfortunately sometimes the person one is with does not want any dramatic changes. They're happy with the way things are.
    We're either growing together or we're growing apart.
