Quite literally. My Mom called me today to tell me that She is going to marry her boyfriend. My Dad passed 6 years ago. I personaly am not real fond of this guy, but he makes my Mom happy, she gets out and travels with him a lot, they take cruises, etc..., he treats her welland knows what would happen if he were to get even verbally abussive to her (the Rooster would come home to "visit"), so if it makes her happy to marry him, then I'm all for it. At age 44 i'm going to have step siblings. Don't know how to react to that one. I know very little about these people. Anybody have a similar situation come up?
