I had been dating Mr. B for 2 years. I enjoyed being single and I yet I had the perfect date when I needed one. I did see myself married in my twilight years, but wasn’t in a hurry to put a ring on it. I came to the realization that since I wasn’t getting any younger and according to Oprah the older I became the less chance I would have getting married again. So, it might be time to start looking for Mr. Right. Didn’t have to think about it for a minute. I knew Mr. B qualified but the question was did he think the same? We hadn’t talked about marriage but I decided to bring up the subject and let him know I was now on the path of marriage and what did he think? His response wasn’t “that would be perfect, I feel the same” but it was “I’ll think about it”. Awkward. So after a month of wondering what should I do keep dating or ….? He popped the question and my GRAND new life began. This is our “happy” family. My new husband and his new five stepchildren plus two spouses. Let’s just say it’s taking awhile for everyone to get use to the idea.
