Adult Stepfamily: Slow Down Your Dating

with Ron Deal | July 2, 2020

After dating a 70 year-old man for three months Tina's mom, age 67, announced she was getting married. Tina, her siblings, the grandchildren and his family all asked the couple to slow down, but they wouldn't listen. Hey, if your child was making an expensive impulsive decision you'd want them to listen to you, right? Take the pulse of your family and trusted advisors. If the consensus is you're moving too fast, slow down. You can move forward without them or listen and take them with you.
