So those who know me know that my marriage ended in October. It has since been annulled (lack of form--it was quick) and I have started to see someone else.
The man is a fantastic person and we have a lot of fun together. He's a business owner, an athlete, and yes, a Catholic, and there's every reason why we are attracted to each other and get along famously. Here's the hitch: He's 54. I'm 31. Is this reason by itself to call off the relationship, or would it be OK to continue seeing each other?
We haven't discussed marrying each other (we haven't been seeing each other long enough :p ), but we know we're generally after the same thing in a relationship--something that could result in marriage. It is his fondest wish that he could be a father. This concerns me just a little, because does he really want to be chasing a teenager at 70? He's in fantastic health (he's already run two marathons this year), but let's face it: You become more likely to drop dead when you get older, and I'm not enthusiastic about raising a baby alone.
We do love each other, and I would like to keep seeing him. But, I don't want to date someone I won't consider marrying. Thoughts?
