My husband David is a great father he may not be my sons father but he is a Dad nunethe less is he always been there for him from the time we were married 17 years ago.
He has put up with a lot he complains a little because my son is now 37 and still at home and he does not look like he is going any where but I love my son and my husband knows this know anyone same boat?
I would love to do so much for him but at the end of the day we don't have two nickles to rub together but we make it thru.
My husband loves Tommy Bahama shirts I some how manage to get him one at christmas time.
They are currently running a contest which I have entered it is one of those write a story and people vote for it. I don't know how some people have 7oo+ votes I think they must have lots of frinds on face book. Please help all I need is a vote. what you do is go to Tommy Bahama .com click on left side open Fathers day contest then sort by most votes I bleave page two Best step father..... withthe name Curlymo1 please vote yes if you like it and you wish to help and maybe pass on to people who may also.

Just to echo what Carla said, really. Good luck with the FaceBook voting thing though.

Also your son does NOT need to be living with parents at his age. A secular TV show I watched last night (I'm British so it was on in the UK) had a little poll amongst the celebrities appearing and the TV studio audience on whether it was "sad" to be still living with parents at the age of 30. I think the vote was 83% felt it was indeed sad to be still living with one's parents at 30. To still live there at 37 is beyond sad. He needs to grow up, get a life and be independent.

You may love your son deeply - but you're "enabling" him in not moving forward.

Good luck.

PS - I voted for your husband in the contest.

Donna, darling, on Christian mommies we do not allow soliciting, whether for votes or money. I don't know if you solicited advice, but here's some from a mama with a 46, 44 and 39 year old:

Sometimes the most loving thing you can do for your child is to set them free. A 37 y/o male still living with his folks needs a gentle, but firm kick to the seat of the pants! It sounds like your husband and you are struggling--does your son contribute to the household? Does he work? I love my children to death, but allowing them to be dependent on their parents isn't teaching them to go raise a Godly family and be a good citizen.

God bless
