Advice on family man?
Sat, 11-01-2003 - 5:55am
Alright heres the thing,

I've met a great guy, and we hit it off. Only thing is I met him through my grandmother. See My Grandmother had a second marriage after my dads father. No childeren came from my grandmothers second marriage, although her second husband had childeren of his own. And he(my man) Is the adopted son of my step-grandfathers daughter. There is absolutely no blood between us. So what I'm asking is if there seems to be anything wrong with a relationship between the two of us??? I mean does it seem wrong?

Of course it's fine. He's adopted and his adopted family is only related you by a second marriage that produced no children. Don't worry about it.

Honey, you have to do what feels right to you and you have to take your family into consideration to some point.

If the two of you aren't so close that you feel "like brother and sister" and there's a mutual interest, then I don't see anything wrong with it. But, make sure that if things are "real" that you run it past your family, because they can cause issues that you'd never expect...and it's always better to get it out in the open before you're completely involved.

Good luck,



Fill with mingled cream and amber,
I will drain that glass again.

there is absolutely nothing morally wrong with seeing him.

just be prepared for some wise cracks from friends and other family members ;-)
