So. My grandma died a year ago. They had been married 51 years. She died very suddenly. Within 3 months my g'pa was dating. although none of the family were exactly happy about that (we all thought it was rather soon after g'ma died) we all put on a happy face and supported him bc we knew he was lonely and want companionship.
Now he had been dating one lady "Mary" for about 4 months. I guess they got serious pretty fast- he has gone on 2 trips with her and the whole family has met her. He is very lovey-dovey with her, which is hard because he was never that lovey dovey with my g'ma.
The whole family (G'pa, aunts, uncles, grandkids and great grandbaby) is going to CO for xmas this year. We are staying in a big cabin with bunk-style bedrooms, shared bathrooms, etc. Not much privacy which is fine since we are all really close and get along well.
G'pa has asked if it is ok to bring Mary. All of our reactions has been "heck no we don't want her to come" but of course we said yes, sure G'pa. Now, though, he want to know if her son can some too. Her son is the age of us grandkids. It is just so wierd. My g'pa has a girlfriend who is coming to the family xmas instead of my g'ma. Now Mary's son (who none of us have even met) might come and we are going to be sharing bedrooms and bathrooms with him.
I don't really have a point with this, just a vent mostly. No one wants Mary and her son to come, but of course we feel that we must invite them at g'pa's request. If anyone has dealt with this sort of thing before and has advice, I would appreciate it.
