It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing now. Today we hear from “Granny’s Got to Go” (LW2) who wrote in three years ago when she was discussing moving in with her boyfriend whose 69-year-old grandmother lived with him. She didn’t want to share a home with the grandmother. She wrote: “I know most people may not have a problem just moving in with a man and his grandmother, but I have a 12-year-old daughter and I want her to feel comfortable in her own house. My boyfriend at first wanted me to move into his house, but I said no, that I want to buy our own house together and start fresh. He agreed with that. He wants to move forward and is getting ready to sell his house, but I see the weight of not knowing what to do with his grandmother upsetting him.”
Are they still together? Did they move in together? What happened to Grandma? Update below:
I almost forgot I wrote to you, haha. Everything worked out in the end. We got engaged, and we bought a house together a year and a half ago. We are getting married in March. His grandmother moved in with her daughter who is an empty-nester. Everyone seems a lot happier with the outcome. His grandmother is super-excited for the wedding!
So glad things worked out and everyone is a lot happier! Thanks for sharing your update, and best wishes on your upcoming nuptials.
