You could offer to take her to see her family yourself.

Boyfriends come and go, but her children and grandchildren will always be her children and grandchildren.

She "keeps getting rides" - is that what you kids are calling it now? Heh, in my day we had stupid euphemisms for sex, too.

But only when she's drunk from her ex.  So there's that.

If someone is 62 and is fairly often getting so drunk that she calls an ex for a ride, she's got a pretty big alcohol problem.  You're 68, do you really want to deal with that drama (and likely physical problems that will fairly soon manifest themselves after a (probable) lifetime of heavy drinking)?

I completely understand wanting to see your kids/grandkids and wouldn't interfere with that.  But there has to be someone out there in their 60s for you that doesn't have more baggage than the arrival area of an airport.

This dude is almost 70? Holy shiat.

I'm assuming the Ex is the father of the daughters and bio-grandfather?

GHOI and STFU.

Oh, 62. I thought the kicker was going to be that the girlfriend is a grandmother at 34 years old.

I RTFA..he doesn't drive.  But he knows it's a 40 minute trip each way?

I also didn't see anything in the article about her being drunk.

Also (last one)..."keeps getting rides" and "exchanging pleasantries"?  Maybe she isn't "sitting beside him"...maybe she's leaning way over from her seat, if you know what I mean.

1. He sounds insecure.
2. If she and her ex are able to get along well enough to visit their kids/grandkids together, then good for them, and for the kids!
3. If he's thinking someday marriage, maybe he should show some interest in her life and ask if he can come along sometime to spend time with her family.

My first thought is dude is awful old to be that insecure.

Some people get along great with their exes. I take such things as a sign that all involved are good people.

I can still call up and possibly make plans with either of my ex wives.
