My mom dating much younger man
I know my older brother can (and probably will) move out, and I have offered my couch to him in case he is uncomfortable staying with her. He can’t go anywhere, and she clearly doesn’t care how he feels about this situation at all. All I know is my mind is overwhelmed and I am upset.
I’m not sure how to approach Thanksgiving, since she still does not know that I know about her boyfriend.
She met him online, and they met for the first time in real life this September. I wrestled with the age difference, and my Grandmother talked me down from my state of dumfounded shock.
She told my grandmother that she didn’t tell anyone because she said she knew we would judge her (damn straight! She told me my mom was old enough to make her own mistakes, and that we would talk about it more when I saw her in person on Thanksgiving. But the more I thought about it, the angrier I got.
I know I can’t avoid the topic for very long, since he is moving in at the beginning of December.
I got married in my early 20s and divorced a few years later.
If you have a relationship/dating question I can help answer, you can send me your letters at I am 24-years-old my mother, who is now 46, divorced my father when I was 13, after years of dealing with his alcohol abuse, many physical altercations, and his refusing to take his medication or go to therapy for his bipolar disorder. I was talking to my grandmother on the phone yesterday, and she told me that she found out my mom was seeing someone.
You can also follow along on Facebook and Instagram. I live on my own, about a 40 minute drive away from the rest of my family, but both my brothers, aged 13 and 18, still live with my mom.
Yes, the age difference bothers me, but not nearly as much as her inviting a guy whom my brothers have NEVER MET move in with them!
I feel like she is disregarding her role as mother in favor of some new relationship that gives her a sense of value.

But they've seen how skittish I am about romance, so I think they're just happy that I'm happy. That's actually one of our biggest fights—and where the age-difference thing comes out in full force.
