My dd is 17 years old and about to graduate from high school. She met a boy online and they have been "dating" for about 4 months now. He is 21 and about to graduate from college. The age thing isn't really a big deal to my husband and I as it's only four years. This isn't her first boyfriend but he is the first one she's ever said she loved. What I'm uncomfortable with is that after a month they were planning on her going to his graduation, then a mini vacation together and moving in together right after that. She'll be 18 by the time this all comes around so I can't stop her, but I'm concerned for her. She is going to college in Florida in the fall, we love in Michigan, after he graduates he plans on moving down there and they want to get an apartment together. This is her life and her choices, but I would be more comfortable if we knew the boy. She'll be the first child leaving home, and it's a big move plus a serious big step in her relationship. Has anyone been a situation like this or have any advice? My husband is having an especially hard time dealing with this. He's not her biological father but he's the one who raised her and the only daddy she has ever known.
