who is 20 years his senior! We just found out a couple weeks ago and although I know it’s not unheard of, it’s still a shocker to our family.
So the facts: They have met once and have mainly been communicating via text/phone/skype. He’s 26, she’s 46. She has a 25 year old son. She is moving from the US to Canada and is going to be living with him. She will not be working while her, so we’re not really sure what her intentions are.
My Mother-In-Law is NOT impressed. MIL told me that she wants to “punch her in the face and tell her to stay the hell away from my son.” MIL is a very Christian lady so this was hilarious to hear coming from her. lol
Anyway, just wanted to share the fun news with everyone! Feel free to share your opinions and related stores!

@Ryansgirl: He’s a grown man and can date whomever he wants.
That being said, if it was my son I’m sure I would react the same way your Mother-In-Law is.

@chasesgirl: Exactly!! It’s like dating one of her son’s friends. Awkward.

i’m 46 and no way in hell would i date someone 26. i have kids close to that age and don’t need any more! i’m sure her family is wondering what the hell she is doing too. best thing to do is keep your mouth shut. just smile and nod.

This is gonna be judgmental, and mean but that’s kinda really creepy. There is cradle robbing, and then there is dating the equivalent of your son.
How does her son feel about this? I know guys do the ” like I did your mom” thing… And it would be true!!! Oh I just creeped myself out…

I think its a little and weird creepy but in all honesty they are both consenting adults so………

Awkward! I would just wait and see what happens. If your MIL/you tell him “no,” sometimes that just makes the guy want to do it more. As long as he’s happy and healthy, I wouldn’t get involved.

My husband and I haven’t said anything to him. We’re just amazed that this is happening and can’t wait to meet her to see what she’s all about!

I don’t really think it’s “creepy” or anything. They’re both adults. This kind of thing happens All the Time when the roles are reversed. People usually only call that creepy when the guy is like 70 and the girl is 20.

Although the age difference might be an issue, I’m more alarmed by the “She will not be working while here, so we’re not really sure what her intentions are.”

Not my bag but to each their own. I hope that when I am 46, I am hot enough to snag a 20 something!

Sounds awkward for her son. My Dad used to work with a neurosurgeon who left his wife and married his surgical nurse, who was 25 at the time. She was the same age as his oldest son and I guess his son was PISSED. Who knows how he would have reacted under less-adulterous circumstances, though. I don’t think it’s really creepy. I think it’s unfair to act like it’s gross for an older woman to date a younger man. Men do it all the time, why can’t we do it too?!? It’s not like he’s 12 and she’s his teacher, they’re both consenting adults.
