Daughter to marry Marine
Posted By: Layne Smith 06-27-11
Well let me start off by saying how much we love my daughters boyfriend. He's been friends with my son for years, so I know he is a good kid. He comes from a good family and is a great man.
My daughter and this young man have been dating for about 2 years. He did a tour in Afghanistan and is back home. My daughter is madly in love with him, and vice versa. All she talks about is getting married with him.
Well the thing is that she is a senior in high school. He obviously is already graduated and lived out some of his youth. What they want to do is wait 2 more years until his enlistment is up and get married. By this time she will be done with her first year in college. He would reenlist and she would move wherever he is.
What I am concerned about is that she is way to young and has not experienced life and for her education. Out of state tuition is extremly expensive and not just that she does not know how to pay bills maintain a home buy grocerys cook etc.
I just really need some advice. Should I accept their relationship and let her get married or disapprove until they prove me right?
His family is all up for the idea but me and my husband her dad and her aunts and uncles definitely disagree. Should I stop this marriage or just accept it?
