At maturity, there's likely to be a réévaluation of the pleasure received in handling responsibility and exchanging affection. This mid-life appraisal is apt to focus on:
• whether responsibility has been handled to produce satisfaction for the individual, OR
• whether friendship, affection and love have been given and received to meet the individual's needs.
At this time in the life, the individual is likely to revise at least some attitudes and actions in regard to responsibility and affection, in order to achieve more satisfaction out of life.
