My SIL has cancer, and her BF asked my husband (her Brother) for his blessing on asking her to marry him and my husband told him not at this time. He told him that he needed get a job and help support his sister and then he might b ok with it. Well a few weeks later he asked her anyways. I know that they don't have to have his approval if she wants to marry him, but why did he ask for my husbands blessing if he was gonna do it anyway. He has no money so i don't know how he could even afford to buy her a ring. also this is the 3rd piece of jewelry that he has bought for her in the past 6 months. and yet he has not worked for 2 yrs. I just thought that it seemed tacky to ask for her phone hand in marriage and yet he still doesn't have a job and is not looking for 1 either. He thinks that his job is taking care of her which he gets paid quite well. He has gotten new tires for his jeep and many other accesories for it. also a new phone and now he wants a to get a very expensive 4- wheeler so they can go riding. I just think that he is trying to get everything that he can get in case she does pass and now he wants to marry her. oh and my SIL pays his child support and etc. If he marries her he would be entitled to everything of hers.Answer Question

I hope everything works out OK for you SIL. This guy is clearly just in it for a free meal ticket. But, she's an adult and can make her own decisions, however poor they may seem in your eyes. All you can do is talk to her. If she's adamant about marrying this tool, there's not a whole lot you can do, other than be there for her as a friend.
