My dad is dating a much younger woman

Would you want others to simply label you a “widow” or “widower”?

Would you want to be alone for the rest of your life?

It’s fine to express your own sad feelings to your parent, but don’t place your own expectations of grief on them. Imagine that own your spouse has passed away (sadly, this will likely someday be the case).

“He got started on online dating and I was really protective of him. I just didn’t want to see him get his heart broken again.” Some adult children are worried about how a new relationship will affect their own financial standing in the family.

“Sure,” Patty told me of her mom’s recent dive back into the dating pool.

They're a great match, and there are no weird power dynamics going on.

ETA: It should be noted that one can 'care' without thinking it's wrong or worse should be illegal.

You might even say Western men are better able to maintain their desire for younger women in a way that isn't as pedophilic as others.
