loveable_hippie Posted March 29, 2007 Share Posted March 29, 2007 I am a 22 year old woman, happily married to a 40 year old man, I love him more than anything in the world and would never trade him for anything however I am having a problem with the way we are spoken to in public. Last night we went to dinner with our 7 month old daughter, the waitress was wonderful and the food superb but when it was time to pay, the waitress said as I was pulling the credit card out of my purse "how nice of you to bring your father out to dinner" then she looked at him and said "your grand daughter is just beautiful". I know that it is unusual to see a couple with so many years between their ages but how do you explain to people who say things like that without sounding rude that this is a marrage not a parrent/child relationship. Also when people say things like this to my husband he gets upset and thinks that the person is being rude, we deal with this not only from strangers but also from people at work. He hurt his back when we moved into our house and when he called in to work the next few days his boss said to him "can't you keep up with your 20 year old wife" I would love advice from anyone on how to deal with this it is beginning to become a big problem and we are starting to not want to go out together anymore.
