Topic: My son is engaged

Tue 2/15/2011 5:31p
My 25 year old son is engaged. I have mixed feelings because they have only been dating for 6 months. But they are waiting another year to get married. My son had been with a girl I really liked for five years. They broke up about 6 months before he starting seeing his current girlfriend.
I really thought he would marry his ex-girlfriend, but he wasn't ready to get married and now he is. It just seems so unlike him.
The other thing is she's 17! She's a sweetheart, but 17! His ex-girlfriend was the same age as him.
My daughter (20) and I are having a hard time believing this. I am glad they are waiting and she is not pregnant.

Well, at least they are waiting for a year. They should be able to really get to each other and make sure that it is what they both want in that time. Good luck to you and to them!

Best of luck to your son and his fiancee. Here's hoping it turns out wonderfully for them!

What do her parents think? You'd have to scrape me off the ceiling, if my daughter announced this at age 17...

I am good friends with the girls mom. She is not too happy about this either. She told her daughter she should wait even longer. Her dad is really not in the picture. We are really shocked. I never thought they were that serious. I hope it doesn't happen. She's too young. I told my son she was too young when he first hanging out with her, but he has been out of my house since he was 18.
Thank-you for the well wishes. Didn't see this coming.

I mean it truly good luck. Having problems with my 18 yr old kid bro. So I can imagine how you're feeling about this. With luck no pregnancy / and they will see that even if they're meant to be they should wait a little more. When I was younger I never thought i'd say this. But at least on her side I think she's a bit too young to make a rational decision about this and it may not be as solid as if they wait a couple or more years. Sorry to be a downer.

I have a 24 year old son so I can related to your son's age and getting engaged. Other people on this post have echoed my feelings about this situation. But, I do wish them all the luck in this world. Congratulations to them. {{{{HUGS}}}}seafairy.
