Have you ever had an engagement party of your own or ever been to one? I heard of them but never been to one and my daughter 19 is planning to get married July 25 she wants the whole works for the wedding. never met the up coming in laws I figured why not try to hold an engagement party? Plus maybe I can hold out the wedding for a longer date She to young and doesn't have college education and no job...lives with boyfriend as she calls him an finace (whatever) He got her ring from Walmart..... He is also married at the present time yes my daughter told me and he has a 2 yr old son. He is 20 yrs old Can you image your child being a stepmom at 19 has no college no job and liveing in gang bang area at the present time? He has a low credit score can't afford anything and bottom of the ladder in the military
Wouldn't you want your child to get married with someone who can support her with everything? yes that includes money and having gettting involved with someone who has no kids and has a better rap sheet.....Answer Question

LOL! A Walmart ring! LOL! OP, your funny. Okay, I haven't thrown an engagement party but I did throw a bachelorette party that was basically the same thing. We got her female family and his female family together and ate a bunch of food and gossiped. It was basically a girls night in. Have you thought about maybe just having some food and people over? Everything is usually celebrated with food anyways, lol.

I think an engagement party sounds like a great way to meet and start to get to know his side of the family. If your only doing it in hopes of putting off the wedding then don't bother. He may not be exactly what you want for her, but that isn't going to change her mind. Try to be supportive of her, even if you don't agree with everything she does, otherwise you may just push her away.

Babe is this a vent or a question, lol! Yes, I would want my children to have the best. The Walmart ring is where I got the thought, wow, she's not okay with this marriage, lol. Breathe mama.

I remember you, you thought your daughter was too good to marry someone in the military and thought the moms that answered your question were low class and I called you out. First my dad and uncle started out at the bottom and in the end my father was medical officer when he left and my uncle was four bird colonel So anything is possible while he is in the military she can go to school and maybe they should wait until he is done with the other marriage so what he bought the ring from Wal-mart if its meant to be when he takes care of his old business and they are sure this is what they want they will know.
