  • Dont leave his side. Keep herself covered up. Thats the only thing I know to do.

  • Ditto to armywife.
    I was going to also say for her to wear a hat out in public so her ethnicity is less noticable.
    Do they HAVE to go?

  • ya i have heard that. (wear a hat...)she is a hair dresser so her hair is streaked red flag...and she is very fair skinned...2 red flags...she dresses very flashy but i told her to tone it down...she doesnt have to go but they have been dating for 2 yrs ...they have no kids she is 24 and he is 27 so the are mature...i hate to be like this but i guess it is what it is...why should she keep herself covered up?i never heard that???interesting...
