8 simple rules for dating my teenage daughter wife
How do any of us know what will happen, or how we will feel?There are those who, devastated by divorce, discover in time that they are happier in their freedom than they were within their marriage-prison.
I realized afterward that I may have sounded like I was insulting her and/or your parenting— and that very much wasn’t my intent.
I am at a loss to understand why my daughter wants to be involved with someone like this. She goes wherever she wants (within reason), has any friend over whenever she wishes, is taxied (by me) everywhere.
Since she’s been involved with this girl (about four months) she’s developed an attitude I don’t like.
She’s at school, with all that implies, and you are quite right to be worried if her new friend is a bad influence. I’ve told him I don’t want commitment, he says he understands and wants to continue our relationship, but I know he’s hoping I’ll change my mind.
My point is that if she were keen on a 17-year-old boy who looked as dreadful, had no job prospects and stayed up all night, leading her into a greater spirit of rebelliousness than is normal in a 15-year-old . He works hard but has frittered away all his money over the years and has nothing to show for it.
