Next Avenue: So you hate your Mom’s or Dad’s new lover

This article is reprinted by permission from NextAvenue.org.

After my grandmother died, my grandfather casually dated several women. They were mostly from the neighborhood and had known my grandmother. My mother and her two siblings were grateful that he had some companionship, especially at mealtime, because they knew how lonely he was without his wife of over 40 years.

But when he introduced them to “Greta” (name changed), their gratitude changed to concern. Greta was 20 years his junior, tall and gregarious — nothing at all like their petite, reserved mother.

It was easy to see why my grandfather would be flattered by Greta’s interest.
