Run, Run away from this.  You are young enough to find something better and someone closer to your age.   Just think, when your 35 and all hot and bothered, he will be 62 and his raisins just won't be able to deliver.

Wait... what age does this happen?
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

Any advice for our old friend Anxious?  You can earn ten points if you echo Mrs. Thompson.
Holy Cannoli ANXIOUS!
You are not doing the right thing. You have a home even if your parents are mean. Do not plan to marry this “old’” insincere man. The age difference between you and him is too great for a successful marriage. End your relationship with this married man. Do not try to break up his family. I do not give free legal advice on divorce. If this 43 year old wants a divorce he will contact his own attorney. My advice to you is take your time. You are too young to marry. Stay in school, meet friends your own age and learn a skill. If you are too poor to stay in school go find a job

Her being 35 may be the problem.
Give him a 22 year old and his raisins would be grapes again!

Since when are you an optimist?
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,

Thank you @Bart Ell, @juan, @anniem, @PolkaDot, @Mr Apnea, @PB, @ShayP and @FISH, for playing the What Will Mrs. Thompson Say? game.

I have never seen such a pissed off Mrs. Thompson.  As a matter of fact, I had to make an escape from her office to avoid being hit by a flying tape dispenser, a box of staples, a bottle of black ink and other office items of 100 years ago.  I walked into her bosses' office and he was smoking a cigar.  He held his cigar box up and I took one.  We both smoked away until things got quiet in Mrs. T's office.  "Must have got a letter from Anxious." he said with a knowing grin.

Stop. How many of us can save her? Remember we’re under this no congregation order.

HELP!  He's closer than 6 feet!  And he has bad breath!
I'm so quick I'm even fast asleep!

Yes, I am a Shape Shiftier. 
The older I get, the more my shape shifts.  Heh, heh.

I am surprised to read Mrs. T.'s response. I never knew that she could be so blunt.
I agree with Mrs. T. response. I threw black ink across the room as well after reading ANXIOUS's letter.
I am thankful that you are OK.
