I have seen this happen in wards where they were plenty of men in their 50s and 60s, i.e. men with empty nests, some even retired and with time on their hands, to choose from. But instead, they would call a younger man with five or six young children to be a bishop, more or less sentencing his unfortunate wife to be a single mother for the next five years, and his children to hardly see him. These young bishops were usually good men; but why not wait until they were older so it would not be such a hardship for their family?!
