I always joked with our only child that he would have to 25 before he got married. I taught at the public school he attended. Even in high school when I was the counselor, he would come by my office before he left for the day. I changed jobs one year after he graduated, it wasn't the same without him being there.
He went to college 200 miles from home and made lots of new friends. Once he even told me the guys were " like the brothers he always wanted." They resurrected a fraternity while there. He graduated college, got a job, not working in the rural family business, and moved 150 miles from home to the big city. Now he is 26 and has a girlfriend that he is serious about.
Today he called me, he was with a jeweler, looking at diamonds. He knows the cut, clarity, price and size he wants. The jeweler showed him 3 diamonds that fit his criteria. He is taking his time to make the decision. Next week the jeweler will have some settings for him to view. He knows what he wants and is proving he is ready to make this decision.
