  • I think that you owe it to your son not to move in with this young guy until your son is of age, graduates and leaves for college or to live on his own. If there is any substance to your relationship with this other person, it will wait until then.

  • I'm wondering just how close to your son's age he is. I can imagine this doesn't sit well with your son, even if he hasn't said anything about it. Being that your son still lives at home, I think you need to talk to him, and ask him how he feels about this guy moving in. Listen to what he has to say, and go from there if you feel like you are both ready to take it to that level. With me, his age raises a red flag. If we are talking about someone who is barely legal, and this is his first serious relationship, then I think you are playing with fire. 8 months isn't a very long time. Perhaps you should wait a little bit longer, and see where it goes before you decide to move this guy in. Good luck in whatever you chose.

  • How would you feel about your son moving in with a woman ten years older than he is?
