My 17 year old daughter will be 18 at the end of June ... Her and her fiance has talked to my husband and I and want to get married on april 17th ( it is a special date because not only did my grandparents get married on that day but so did his ! ... It is on a Sunday this year meaning it will be on a weekday next year, and they wont beable to have the big wedding on a weekday.......
If we dont allow her to in April, then they will in June ( after she turns 18) on a not as special day ...
Honestly the only problem we have with it is what people will say about it... we live in a small town and my husband is a well known community member and it is really the only problem we are having with it ( I know that shouldnt be a real reason) ...
- We love her fiance, he is wonderful to her, he also has a great job ( the kind that will doubtfully ever get "shut down"). She also has a very large savings account, that would support her/ them for a long while if something like that ever did happen
- She has spent that last 2 years in a technical school taking cosmetology classes, all she has to do is take the test to get her lisence ( meaning she has a back up plan if it doesnt work out) .
- Plus since I was 17 when my husband and I got married ( and we have had a long happy marriage) , I feel like a hypocrite for not letting her ( especially since my mom tried to not let my husband and I get married )
