Remember Melanie? We talked to Melanie last week about her boyfriend that is 26 years older than her and how her parents had invited them over for a BBQ, but had no idea of their age difference! We got an update from her in an e-mail…
“Yi guys. Sorry I can’t come back on the radio with you, but here is what happened when my boyfriend came over to meet my parents at the BBQ yesterday. I couldn’t bring myself to tell them his age before we went over there. It was kind of weird because my dad was really cool about everything. They got along great and they’re even going to play golf next weekend. When we were leaving my dad told me that as long as I was happy he was happy for me. My mom on the other hand was strange about it. Every time my boyfriend was telling a story, she would cut him off or try to butt in and change the topic. It was almost like she was jealous of him or something. She never told me if she liked him or not, but I got the feeling she wasn’t happy about it. Oh well. I guess she’ll just have to get used to it because I know he is the man for me. Thanks again for doing my OPP guys…it really made me realize that this is what I want.
Melanie <3 “
What do you think about this?
I’m happy for Melanie! Age is nothing but a number and she’s right…Her mom is going to have to get over it, especially if the father is ok with it because that seems so very rare.
