do not marry before you're 30

I'm having a hard time believing this whole Brooks having a baby thing. I mean, I'm not saying you're wrong but he is in his late-mid 30s and seems pretty career driven. His wife also looks...well shall we say older? He really doesn't come across as the fatherly type. He was also married before for a very long time and had no kids. If I'm wrong I'm wrong. I'm sure you know more about this stuff than me. I do find it odd. But anyways if it's true good for him. I just didn't think he was the type.

Well, but the guy is in his late 30s now and rapidly approaching middle age so I don’t think it’s really all that implausible that he’s entertaining making room in his life for a kid (or two) as part and parcel of his new marriage. Many of he peers in his age group are doing just that. I mean, just look at Nate and Zack.  

Brooks has been doing therapy work of his own and mentioned he’s greatly benefited from it.  Four years ago, with the divorce of his wife and his destructive behaviors that came to a head on Tumblr, he appears to have decided to confront and address all the damage he’s incurred and avoided all these many years since C  o  lumbine.  He also mentions his new girl..wife.. has been a healing influence on him for too.  So, given all of that,  I don’t think Brooks wants to stay stuck as that perpetually single gaming dude that is now ‘over the hill’.   He’s kind of freaked out that he’s actually going to be a dad as it’s uncharted territory for the dude.  He probably fears raising a clone of himself..with this little boy and the thought of that unnerves him.  I think you’re right in that, even he didn’t think he was that type. but now here he is doing the father thing.  But, on the other hand, it’s could prove to be a positive new chapter to his life where he can begin to, at least hopefully,  start focusing responsibly on others other than just indulging himself. whenever and whereever ;)  Then again, he might not be up to the task and will fail miserably.  Time and experience will tell.  haha.  Hopefully, he won’t make a huge mistake and mess up miserably.  But honestly, I don’t think his wife is that old, certainly not past childbearing years, although they did suffer a miscarriage. But this baby boy Mini Brooks is now 20 weeks along. :)

“Hopefully he’s nothing like me”    lol  Well, at least he’s self aware about it. ;)
