It happened to my sister, whose sons are older than mine, and it's about to happen to my son as well. High school girlfriend of a year and a half. She's a wonderful girl, we've gotten to know her very well, and she's really good for my son. I would be very happy if she were the mother of my grandchildren. They'll go off to [different] schools in the Fall, and I expect they will "grow apart." How sad. Of course he'll get another girlfriend, eventually, and I'll love her too . . .
