  • Nope. I don't care if my DD was pregnant or whatever the reason... Absolutely not.

  • No, if they really want to get married and are willing to spend the rest of their lives together they will be able to make until they are old enough with out your signature-

  • I cant say yes or no. It all depends on how everything is at that time.

  • I was about to say NO, NO, NO, NEVER, not for anyone.......until I read the body of your question! I thought it was a credit issue. For that though, it would depend on my childs maturity.

  • Co-signing is a bad idea in any form. I recently found a bible verse on the topic! They will need to get used to living with the laws on this one. As they want to live like adults, they need to obey the laws like one. Help them set a date to show your support at some point in the future when they legally can. It is not abnormal to be engaged for several years if need be.

  • Nope not a chance. Wynden has a great point. If they truly love each other than they can wait.

  • Nope. Cosigning means it's partly my descision... and that is not something i'd ever want to do. Legally, sh eneeds to be able to fuly consent to a marriage. it's something that i shouldn't have a part it.

  • I wouldn't. If they are that much in love they can wait until they are legal.

  • Mine are only 1.5 and 2.5, so I really don't know. I guess you never know what you would do in a situation until you were there. I guess it would probably depend on how I saw the situation and if I really believed that it was the right thing to do...but just on a whim, I would say no. lol.
