Backstory-After living about 3 hours from here, my 39 yo stepdaughter has decided to move back home.  It makes sense, she doesn’t have any family where she was, and two of my kids are married and living within an easy hour from SWMBO and me.  So we’re happy she’s coming back to be with family.  She’s sold her house and has moved in with us.  The game plan is to live with us for several months banking what would have been the house payment, get a good handle on the real estate market and find her own house.

 

SD is single.  She got married early on, divorced after just a year, and made a few additional not so good choices in men just after that.  I imagine most of you know someone like that-so focused on marriage and the house with picket fence that they forget to 1-make sure the person they select is actually someone that’s decent, and 2-figure out what they themselves actually want in terms of a life and how they want to live.  After a few bad experiences, to her credit she’s focused on her own life and job (teaching).  So I figured she’d move down here, and things would go on as usual.  Silly me. 

 

There was a get-together of my old workgroup last week.  SWMBO accompanied me to see everyone, including ‘Joe’ who is recently divorced, and a good guy. On the way home, SWMBO started talking about how we need to have a dinner where we invite Joe along with some others where ‘it wouldn’t look too obvious that she was trying to introduce SD and Joe’.  I told her, last I knew, Joe was seriously dating someone.  “Oh, well, I won’t interfere.”

Two nights ago, we were to meet with our builder and his son to see the price estimate for our new house.  We’d met with the builder before in the son’s house where it was obvious he was divorced.  The clay pigeon thrower sitting in the dining room was a dead giveaway.  So when we went to meet the builder, SD was invited/required to come along.  Damned if the son’s fiancée didn’t drop by while we were there, so another campaign thwarted. 

 

It's apparent SWMBO has a new mission in life and that is to track down and bag a spouse for SD.  To be fair, SD isn’t necessarily opposed to the idea.  So it appears this will be an interesting summer, where GnC is going to hopefully stay down in the trenches and dodge the bullets.

 

TLDR – Stepdaughter has moved back home and SWMBO is now a guided missile of matrimony.

Sounds like my wife. 

 

Good luck, but coupling just kinda happens on its own. It might seem like "its never gonna..." and then boom, the D. My wife is always moaning about the single women in the family. "When are they getting married? When are they having kids? When when when?"

 

Leave it alone, woman, and it'll happen. Go worry about that fence your meth-addicted crack lord husband isn't painting fast enough cuz dat... dat couch. Oh shit, it's floating up to the ceiling again!  I gotta... i gotta hold it down!

You guys are what... 30 minutes apart???

Gary should show his wife how stupid the idea actually is and try to make a connection with your guy.

Hey what the hell? Nevermind you are right.

Actually I bet are circles are not too far apart. I've hung out with plenty of guys from the homebrew club Gary was/is apart of.

I can’t tell if there is/was “take care of me” baggage here or not.
