    I'm not clear about your question, either. Are you asking if it's OK at our age to leave your significant other at home and travel with a new lover on a sneaky, adulterous bike ride?

    Put me on the list with those who don't understand the question. But my kneejerk response before I realized I didn't know what you were asking was, "If you can decide whether to do it, it isn't love." Maybe I'm spoiled by a great 35-year marriage, but to me, love isn't something you can schedule or control to a significant degree. You can decide to break up a relationship, but that's a different thing.

    If you are going to break it off, have the decency to do it now, before the other woman.

    I believe the lyrics are, "If you can't be with the one you love, honey, love the one you're with..."
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "WOW! WHAT A RIDE!"

    I'm reading this as someone who either is married AND seperated, or divorced but still in contact with former spouse, who now has new boy/girlfriend that he/she wants to take on a cycling vacation ?

    Or maybe not ?.

    Adultery? He's not married. It says significant other, not wife.

    He's asking the group to endorse sleeping around?

    Wasn't there an earlier post asking for advise on whether to break up with the SO?

    This isn't even funny, just sad.

    Right Pam,

    Just weird! Alright, it isn't really clear what the question is, . . . but it sounds like there's a lot going on in the background that isn't reflected in the question .

    clarification bluntly stated. No adultery.

    My SO for several yrs. refuses to travel. I love travel; hence, the relationship is on the outs...for the second time.

    I'm 60. Is that too old to look for another relationship--this time w/someone that loves travel and bikes?

    So if you're not committed by marriage or connected by children, I don't think it's that big a deal to...

    Slip out the back, Jack
    Make a new plan, Stan
    No need to be coy, Roy
    Just get yourself free.

    Hop on the bus, Gus
    Don't need to discuss much
    Drop off the key, Lee
    And get yourself free.

    Thanks for the clarification. If the relationship with the SO is over, and you have communicated that to her, then go for it! If not, then end it, and then go for it! My step-father is 86. He has a girlfriend (my mother died about three years ago). It's never too late. And good for the body and mind and soul.

    "Catch and Release" posts probably belong on a bass fishing forum.

    Never to old to start again. sad that you cannot work out the travel thing, as there must be some good qualities that have kept you together over the years.

    My Dad used to hte to ravel and Mom had the travel bug. In the last few years of this ife he started to enjoy some travel, then he died. Mom has continued to travel. Point is some people do change on travel. Why doesthe SO refuse to travel? Is it something that can be cured?
