Daughter dating wrong guy

18 Dec

Therefore while talking with him, he explains what the requirement would be in order for him to have his permission. they’ve forgiven each other, loved each other unconditionally. I don’t have a lot of friends planning their daughter’s wedding, in fact, they’re still having babies.It’s easier to see the right guy when you look at him the way God does. We’re already talking about my daughter wearing and altering my wedding dress, getting save the dates from Minted. It’s an unfamiliar territory and I can’t wait to share this journey with you.But in the absence of tangible “you’re hurting yourself and risking life-long sorrow” reasons? Good parenting means giving your kids the tools to make good decisions, NOT making decisions for them.EVERY SINGLE HAPPY PERSON I KNOW is happy because of independent choices – not predetermined plans foisted upon them by overbearing parents.I've been a lurker here for some time, and I've seen some great advice given out. I found out that my 17 (18 in 6 months) year old daughter is dating a 25 year old guy that she had previously only been friends with, and Im not sure how to handle this.First off, my Daughter is a smart, funny, mature, independent girl with a lot of friends and who does very well in school, and is preparing for college next year. She broke up with her last boyfriend (who was her age) because he always had drama going on around him, and unlike a lot of teenagers I know, she hates drama. ) Daughter met him some months ago when her friend got her uncle (The Guy) to drive them to the mall.

I start to question her on the nature of their relationship. On that note, I feel she is comfortable talking and being open with me.My husband was approached with the question of “Do I have your permission to marry your daughter” He was caught off guard. I also think about how my mother would have given my ex-boyfriend permission to marry me. He was a drug addict, abusive and had a lot of issues. He loves us in spite of our weakness, selfishness, and sin.He would not have been a good choice for me, but I already knew that. He loved us so much to provide a way to an abundant, eternal life with his son Jesus. After I put my emotions to the side, I started thinking about my daughter’s relationship and that question. In their 5 years of dating, they’ve had one heck of a roller coaster ride. What do you do when your parents don’t approve or feel that the person you love/dating is the right person for you? And while I like to maintain a separation between church and date, I don’t think your culture can be entirely ignored here. So if your parents are super-caring and attentive, they’re likely to be overprotective.Do you respect their wishes and find someone who is welcome at home and around your family, or do you follow your heart and stay with the person you love even if your parents may not attend the wedding? I’ve explored this concept before, in relation to successful women, but I think it applies to Judaism as well. If they’re intelligent, they’re likely to be opinionated.
