My daughter dating older man
I have to do something about this pedophile, but I don’t know what! That is one sick man who involved with a 14-year-old girl.There is a law against those maniacs for a good reason.Yesterday, it was announced that singer Bryan Ferry had separated from his second wife, Amanda, after a mere 19 months of wedded bliss.I couldn’t help but note she is 37 years his junior. For much of my adult life I had a penchant for older men. Like Catherine Zeta-Jones, whose relationships with men her own age seem to have ended in disappointment, I found the majority of my male contemporaries to be boobies, lacking in wit, experience and chivalry. Well, the Duke of Wellington became Prime Minister for the second time aged 65.Our 17-year-old son who has gently voiced his opinion about how wrong he feels the age difference to be.We realize, and have told our daughter, that if this is her choice we will accept it, but we are not happy with it.At the time, I sincerely believed, to paraphrase Mae West, it’s not the age of the men in your life, it’s the life — or high life — in your men.
It’s only when we are older that we begin to understand these exchanges between young girls and older men, the power play at the heart of them and the damage that can be done.I knew back then that this made me attractive, and being attractive to grown men made me feel good.I didn’t think much beyond this fact, or why these men wouldn’t prefer to hang out with women their own age.I remember what it was like to be young and “on the cusp”.When I was in my early to mid-teens, this meant, to some of the men I encountered, I was “not quite legal” or, as many preferred, “jailbait”.
