Patiently Move Toward Your Kids
About the Guest
A larger percentage of older couples are taking another run at love and realizing that stepfamily living across the generations is not easy. A newly married man, 84 years old, widowed nine years, approached me at a seminar. He was worried about his adult daughters. â€œThey didnâ€™t come to the wedding,â€ he said, â€œand they wonâ€™t accept my marriage. What do I do?â€ Patiently move toward them by yourself initially. They are invested in you, not the new marriage. Your wife will have to be patient, too.
My audience is getting more gray.
