Becoming the mate of a werewolf does not give a human mate the ability to resist aging. To compensate (a little) for this, though a werewolf can only have one mate at a time, many wolves (like Samuel) end up with a number of mates over the years. And yes -- the apparent age difference poses a lot of problems for wolves trying to pass for humans. Think little old lady whose grandson lives in and helps out . . . Or rich old lady and her pretty gigolo . Now, that being said, I'm still playing with scenarios for Mercy and her mate. Remember, although it feels like a tragedy for Mercy, we all get old. Is that a tragedy? I don't think so. So if all Mercy has is the normal allotment of years for humans, it's not a terrible thing. After all, a coyote who plays with vampires and things that go bump in the night isn't exactly working hard at longevity anyway.
