実践ビジネス英語 2020/12/2 L15(1) Midlife Crisis 中年の危機
-Summary
Ueda asks the A&A staff about midlife crises. And Nissen says it can be a stressful time for many people. Grace adds that it’s normal for people at that age to face tough choices about dividing their time and money among themselves, their parents and their children. Lyons says it’s wonderful that older people live longer now but that it also means a greater financial burden on their families.

Q1). 上田は、どのような人にこれまで1度も会ったことがないのですか。
Ueda says, “I’ve never met anybody, in Japan or in America, who says they’ve had a middle crisis.”
Q2). ライオンズによれば、中年の危機の1つの要因は何ですか。
Lyons says, “the plain truth is that it can mean an increased financial burden for their family.”

midlife crisis 中年の危機
Feelings of fear, uncertainty, dissatisfaction that emerge around the middle of a person’s life as we reassess what we’ve done and what we’re likely to do. Things like, she experienced a midlife crisis when her kids finally left home. So, she’s started seeing a therapist. Or, what a cliché! He was having a midlife crisis. So, he bought a new sports car.
cliche [kliːʃéi] 決まり文句、常とう句
An idea, an action, a statement that lacks freshness, lacks originality.  Ueda uses it as a noun.
