WAYYYY Younger

My adorable hunk is 22. I am 35. We just had a baby. His mom is PISSED. Not exactly what she had in mind for her college student son. He and I have been joined at the hip for more than 3 years, now.

He is going to join the military, and he wants to get married so I can go wherever he goes. I have 3 older kids from my marriage, which ended 5 years ago. That would mean pulling them out of school, not to mention trying to restart my own career. I really am stuck... no idea how to proceed. It seems like my issue is very unique. Most other military women are the 19 years old and more than happy to get married and move because they dont have occupations of their own yet, really..

I am normally very confident, take-charge, a go-getter. I am disappointed in myself that I am having a rough time deciding what to do. I would be really crushed to lose him, but do I want to give up my livelihood..? ionno.

I'm dating a 20-year-old who wants to join the Marines. I'd follow him anywhere, I'm so in love with him. I have a 13-year-old son; he was friends with my boyfriend before we even started dating. I'd pack everything up and take my son wherever BF went. Yes, it would mean changing schools, but I also know he'd get the chance to experience a lot of amazing things. And my son wants to be a Marine himself, so watching my BF go through it would be an amazing experience for him.

I know this post was a while ago... but how are you doing? I am 32 and my marine is 24. We have been together for 1 1/2 year. His family adores me. but I am in the same situation as you were minus the child.
