My mother and I lost my father just over two years ago. Now she has met another man, who lost his wife over a year ago. They are in love and have found happiness together. They are also both almost 85 years old. I am very happy to see my mother find someone else - that doesn't mean she didn't love Daddy and that doesn't take anything away from 58 years of memories with him. Yesterday, the new man told his children he was going to ask Mother to marry him (which he did). His children are horrified! "No - she's only after your money. She's going to get part of our share. You have to put in the will that whatever you give her reverts back to us if you die." Yes, this man has some money. No, that's not why Mother loves him. I wish someone could tell his children (who are grown with children of their own), how much they are hurting him. Of course, Mother has told him she cannot marry him because of the stress it will put on his relationship with his children. Two people who should be able to be happy in their golden years aren't going to be allowed to be because of greed. As I said, people stink!
