Five months ann I ii Abby Five months ago I met a man who changed my life He is a college student has his own business and a parttime job Hes very mature and has a good head on his shoulders His goals in life are realistic and he knows that it takes work to achieve them Two months ago our relationship progressed to another level and we have been together every night since day is better than the day before Neither of us uses the word love to describe our relationship nor do we say it to each other Abby we have so much in common but we cant overlook the fact that I am 32 and he is fear this fairytale relationship will end because of the age difference Although he tells me I am everything he has ever wanted in a woman Im afraid hell want a younger woman later on Is it possible for a relationship like this to last Older but Not Wiser In Texas Dear Older You have known each other only five months and you say that neither of you has mentioned the word Although hes only 21 hes wise enough to know that if he says I love it would probably lead to a commitment he is not ready to assume You ask if its possible for this relationship to last I have no crystal ball but if youre seeing each other exclusively six months from now and he still hasnt used the word Id advise you not to plan your future around him Dear Abby We enjoying taking vacations with our married son and his family it gives us quality time with them especially the grandchildren However I dont know if I can continue because their idea of a vacation is to do absolutely nothing I do all the cooking cleaning washing and baby sitting By the end of the week 1 am worn out The same thing happens when they come to our home I would prefer to spend my time with the grandchildren What would you suggest I do Tired Mom in Georgia Dear Tired Mom Your predicament may be of your own making because you pitch right in and get things organized without asking for help Confer with the other adults in your family and lay down ground rules for your vacations Parcel out duties even to the children Trade off on the cooking and cleaning chores and babysit when it is convenient for you At the start of the vacation post a list
