My BIL (hubby's bro) met a woman online while on deployment. They began planning their wedding before he even got back. He came back from deployment and they have spent maybe a couple of days here and there together. What are your thoughts about getting married after such a short time and an even shorter time actually spending time together? I really don't care either way, it's their lives but my husband is not dealing well at all. I get that it's his baby brother, but they are going to do what they want. He gets mad at me for accepting the situation. I told him to talk to his brother but he pretty much just talks at him.

I find it odd and wouldn't personally do it.

thats how me and hubby meet. on myspace while he was in iraq. i moved up to his hometown and became friends with his friends and we meet through  them. we "dated" 6 months then he got 3 weeks R&R and we got engaged at the end of it. he went back for 4 more months and we got married 2 months after he got back. we have now been married almost 5 yrs. it was hard not gonna lie you can hide alot about oneself online. we struggled but we are in a great place now.

What the hell is the rush? I don't think I would be extremely happy about it.  Yeah, it's their life - blah blah blah, doesn't mean I have to like it.

they should continue their virtual relationship with a virtual wedding, virtual kids, virtual pets...


just relocate to sims and everything will be great.

That's what I think they should do!!! Yeah I don't understand the rush either. Yeah neither of us think its a great idea. But my hubby is fighting it tooth and nail and kicking and screaming! I told him he should come to some kind of peace with it. I guess...

I wouldn't/couldn't do that. But is their lives and all you can do is support them, and be there if things fall apart.

My brother and SIL did similar to that. They were both deployed to Iraq, but different areas. They met in Kuwait waiting for a plane ride home, split their leave with families and together (3 days with family, 3 days together, and then 3 days back with family), saw each other in Kuwait again for 2ish days, came home 6 molnths later and got married. They just celebrated their 7th anniversary this past January.
