Ask Amy: Elder man wants to shelve wife for younger model

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: I'm a 67-year-old man, married for over 40 years.

I felt pressured into marrying my wife, all those years ago. We have two children, both middle-aged men.

I met “Annie” online and we've been chatting and talking for two years now.

I really like her! She is a little immature but seems very fun to be around.

She's 29 years old. She says she's in love with me, but we've never met.

I’m hoping to meet her next month.


I've told her many times that I'm too old for her, but she starts to cry and doesn't want to think about not being without me.

I've tried various common-sense approaches, but she starts to cry.

What do you think I should do?

Will this be a mistake?
