My baby brother is 21 y/o & he is dating a 29 y/o woman. We are all (meaning the rest of the family) supposed to meet her tonight.
We have also found out that she has a 9 y/o son that lives with his father. My mother is more bothered by that than the age difference ~ but believe me, that is driving her insane as well. She said if he was like 25 & she was 33 or if he was 27 & she was 35 that wouldn't bother her. So it's really not so much the age difference as it is HIS age in comparison to hers right now (hope that made sense). But regardless, the fact that she doesn't have custody of her kid really bothers my mom & I must admit it makes me wonder as well. My brother says that she was tricked out of getting custody. I don't know what to think. I just wanted to vent to someone about this that isn't involved it the situation. I want my brother to be happy, but trust me, he is not mature for his age. He's not immature either; he's just like an average 21 y/o guy. I can't imagine why a 29 year old woman would want to date someone who is basically a kid. Am I being overprotective? Is my mother over-reacting? I don't think we are, but I'm just curious what do y'all think?
