I’d be leaving more than just him if it went wrong.A breakup is not so simple when children are involved. There’s too much potential for comparing our kids that could become ugly.However, my parents now say that if I want to live under their roof (I moved home to save money for law school), this relationship will not be happening.They say, “This world already has enough problems; you don’t need to add this one (meaning an interracial relationship) to the mix.” My parents have always been loving and supportive, and it seems so silly that they are basing their judgment of him purely on the color of his skin.She will not talk to these neighbors in fear that it will make the situation worse.
Everyone has a different style of parenting and teaching, and the last thing I need to be around is a kid that never stops screaming. Men with kids often times feel like them having a kid too is an automatic pass for a group play date or trip to Disneyland together.
DEAR AMY: I disagree with your answer to “An Older Lonely Heart,” the woman engaged to a widower with a 10-year-old daughter.
I agree that bereavement counseling would be helpful for the 10-year-old, but think that sleeping with the girl and her dad should not be out of the question.
They can set up whatever structure they want, even if it is unreasonable.
Your boyfriend sounds like a nice guy, and you should have a relationship with him if you want to.
