Their oldest children (triplets) are only about 11 so it might have been easier for all involved if the age discrepancy wasn't so great.
I think it really depends on the player and the family. I have known players/famalies that are still really close to this day and the players call their ex host families just to talk or will take their host families out for dinner ect. I also know of players that have had to be moved because of "clashes" with the family.
