So, last night my uncle announced his engagement to the family when we were all gathered together for our Christmas party. My uncle is in his early 40s and is currently living in the family cabin on the river. He doesn't have a lot of friends. He is a vegetarian and is very obnoxious about it. He is the youngest of five children. He was with his previous girlfriend for 16 years. He has gone back to school recently. He just got a new job.
So, my problem is...his new fiance? She's my age. Maybe even a month or so younger than me. She's 26. And they've only been dating since July. And she has a 20-month old little girl.
What is going on? Is this a mid-life crisis or what? I don't know how to respond to this. I miss my old 'aunt' a lot and I've only met this new girl three times.
