My sister texted me and said "holy shitballs give me a call big news about dad!!!"

(My dad proposed to his g-friend on Valentine's Day... we have yet to meet her)

So I call her right away, she's shitting her pants. I tell her to have a glass of wine. She is out shopping, so she picks-up a bottle. We are happy for him, because my mom died 6 1/2 years ago and we support him in his decision. 

My younger sister texts me "can you believe the news 'bout dad!??! I say I know Right?!  She says "I'm happy for him...But I'm trippin!" 

I'm just stunned...?  It took my younger sister 3 weeks to get it out of him.

They are both selling their houses and buying one together.

I don't know if they are going to be engaged for awhile... or going to the justice of the peace....


Any Advice... Or Similar Situations Out There?

We met and married in less than two months.  Four kids and over six years together.

My mom is getting married to an old bf from before my father. Daddy passed in 05 so although I'm happy for her I still feel a little bitter sweet xo

I think that you should just be happy for him and leave it at that. My situation with my dad and his fiancée is very drama-filled and complicated but he's my dad and I love him and I want him to be happy, so I'm happy for him and I just leave it at that.

It seems impulsive but maybe it will work out. I don't think there's anything wrong with him getting married though, he mourned for years and now wants happiness. I think they should've waited on buying a house together and selling each of their homes, though.

I don't know when or where they are going to buy a house?

I just wish him well!

Quoting Motherof3inNJ:
