Working as a couple: the first transition often comes as a response to the first major life event that dual-career couples face together. This first transition is accompanied with two common traps, concentrating exclusively on the practical and basing decisions primarily on money.
Reinventing themselves: in their middle years, many feel a pressing need for individuation, or breaking free of certain expectations in order to become the authors of their own lives, therefore reinventing themselves. Such individual reflection and exploration can lead to additional traps such as mistrust and defensiveness and asymmetric support.
Loss and opportunity: the third transition is typically triggered by shifting roles later in life, which often create a profound sense of loss, i.e. careers plateau or decline, there are physical changes and children may leave home. Although, this transition is usually triggered by loss, it can also represent potential opportunities for late-in-life reinvention, especially in today’s world where people are living longer and are healthier than ever. Nevertheless, also this transition is accompanied with challenges such as unfinished business and narrow horizons.
