Here comes trouble
My YSS55 and I have an arms-length relationship, civil and polite but that's about it. He lives out of town and has been separated from his wife for several years altho they arent divorced. He's an excellent father to 3 daughters and the youngest, 14yo, lives with him. The 2 older ones live elsewhere and are launched.
YSS has always been a very cool guy so it's been surprising to hear him talk about his GF, "C". They've been together over a year. She has 3 elementary-age daughters and is going thru a divorce. I've never heard him so enthusiastic and interested in a woman. They don't live together but he got her a job at the business he manages. He is really in to her, I can tell.
I don't think he's met her girls but SD61 was here today telling us about "C" meeting his. SD61 exaggerates everything but there's usually a kernel of truth there. No problem with the older ones but I hear GD14 said, "I'm going to out my foot down! I'm not calling her Mom! She can't tell me what to do!"
So this is going to be interesting. YSS is blaming his ex for putting this stuff into GD14's head. Buckle your seatbelts, guys.
