    The first caller with the wife from Mexico – may I please suggest you stand very firm on your convictions as far as having your step children live with you and your wife. Not sure what the confusion is or what control your wife has but you are number one (along with your wife in your marriage) and you are the head of your household. If you do not want your older step children to live in your home so be it. Your sentiments must be respected as well. I pray things get understood and settled between you and your wife.

    Dear Sister (3rd caller), I understand how you feel about your brother in law dating a familiar friend, I think I would have some reservations about that as well. That was pretty fast and it’s almost as if your brother in law didn’t mourn, the friend either. I am not judging them but that’s how I feel. Maybe if things didn’t happen so quick between them you would feel different, but things are what they are and I pray that you can continue moving on with your life in peace and continue loving your nephew as you do.

      I agree and would feel exactly like Lynn. Men are so in a rush to get involved with someone else. They don’t always even know them, but just want someone there for them. I think it’s denial so they don’t have to live with themselves. Also it could be a rebound relationship that won’t be serious. I don’t think it’s Lynn’s past or childhood that caused her anger, only the present.
