An interesting life moment
Posted by: Drew
Date: August 12, 2017 07:00PM
My oldest son brought his girlfriend over for dinner last night. We had met before, but only briefly and before they started their relationship, so it was a big moment. He's 26 and she's 25. Very nice girl and they get along well. They hung out and we talked for a long time. It's astounding to think that anyone would fall in love with my son. Not because he's not a great guy, only because he's my son and I know him too well. smile smiley No wedding plans (at least as far as I know. They don't have any money!) But I'm suddenly a potential grandfather, which is a strange thought but actually quite a satisfying feeling as well. Just wanted to share.

Grandfather? Kinda jumpin the gun... =)

I was just thinking how my mom had me 1 month after her 19th birthday -- if I had done the same, my kid would be 32, and if he had a kid at 19, they would be 13, and if they did the same = great grandfather before 60.

I guess some cultures get married early, right? so this wouldnt be shocking to them...

My favorite bartender/owner is 5th generation mom of a kid before 20. Her daughter is @19 right now. We have a pool going she has no idea about. There is a 5 generation photo of the women. If a daughter comes along soon, could be 6. I think the oldest is 95 right now.

You've been a potential grandfather for a long time...

It's the realization of the potentiality that's interesting. Not only that, but that the little boy is a man and he seems to have made a good choice, if that's how it ends up going.

My 22 yr old son is in his first serious relationship. Humbling as he seems very young - but my wife and I married at 22 almost 30 years ago...

Yeah, there was something very cool about growing up as the child of young parents. Sadly, I did not repeat that with my own kids, something that was not possible, of course, with their mother.

likewise here. My son is 21 and in a three year relationship. His mother says he is too young. i chuckle at that because got married she she was 19 after a one year relationship - that was 32 years ago.

(my smartass son says people had to get married young back then because we didn't live as long)
