My daughter is in her mid-20's and dating a man in his mid-40's. I understand that outside of committing a felony that there's nothing that I can do about it. I'm on the sidelines hoping that this "relationship" ends soon - very concerned. My ex was nvr a good guy, but i kept grudge against my parents for not letting me to take charge of my life, I know we wont end well, but my parent not only NEVER LISTEN, they cold towards me throughout the days, we never speak, we never look eye too eye.I've avoided meeting this man because I'm convinced that it wouldn't work out well. Look I am a 23 year old and the man i have been seeing is 41. They even say that I was a *****, a worthless daughter, They despise me for not following the road they expected me to walk.If they don't like it, just remember you are an adult and are able to make your own decisions. And i hope you guys are wearing protection if you guys are having intercourse.
As long as you can see that from their end, the talk should be ok. His parents have met me and like me even if they don't agree with the living arrangement.
I never thought twice about our relationship until i realized i was going to have to tell my mom.
We value the same things, he makes me incredibly happy, and i love him.
It's not at all that i fell in love with the wrong person, because i don't feel he is the wrong person at all, our only "problem" if any in our relationship is the age gap. As a dad, seeing that my daughter brings home a 40 (almost) year old guy... How important is the statement "age is just a number" to you?
His parents know about us and they like me, but i know it will be a big issue with my parents. Because you are going to have to solidify your belief in that statement to sell it to your parents.
