What it’s like to date an older man at 17, then marry him

I actually was 16, almost 17, and I started working at a restaurant. I was hired as a hostess, and he was a server. Sam was 24, almost 25. I had a boyfriend at the time, who was also a senior in high school, like me. (My parents put me in school early.) The summer after I graduated, Sam and I had a lot of the same shifts, and we started talking more and just hanging out. I never went for older guys, and he never dated younger women, until me. But I related to him so much better than my boyfriend. I ended up breaking up with my boyfriend and dating Sam.

My parents always liked him. He’s a great person, he’s very easy to like, and he showed respect for my parents. Also, my parents met when they were 18 and 19, and my mom’s parents got married when they were 17 and 19. There was a little bit of flexibility. But there was a time I was sort of rebelling, and I stayed out late with Sam, really late, and this was before cellphones, and my dad gave his lecture: “I will call the cops on you, Sam.” He did it as nicely as possible.
