Dating widower daughter
His kids (the ones still at home) are a 16-year-old son and a 9-year-old daughter. Things were going along just fine, and his daughter came home for Thanksgiving, and then a couple weeks later, my annulment was finalized.
No sooner had I told him that the annulment was done, did he come to my house and tell me that things weren’t going to work because his kids don’t want it.
Well, after he got moved into his new house, we started corresponding over email and chatting online. We fell in love and wanted to take things slowly for his kids’ sakes.
And, in December 2005 I realized that I wanted to go out on a date with this man. He told me he would do everything he could to make this work because he wanted us to be together. Also, we are both Catholic and he asked me to get an annulment, so I did because I wanted to get closure on my previous marriage and so that we (this man and I) could be together. I guess I should mention that I also have two children ages 17 and 11.
But, he also tells me that he loves me and my kids very much and that his kids love us, too, but don’t want to be with us on a permanent basis.
As far as I know, they haven’t given him a reason as to why.
It would be unfortunate for him to pursue a relationship with her just because she reminds them of their mother, but in either case, you have a right to know where things stand.
It can also end up hurting him more, if you're not comfortable discussing emotionally charged issues.I understand his reluctance to make a decision that they are not ready for.
