I'd tell her that is great if that's what will make her happy, but I'd tell her to at least take classes until she marries.
the same way I reacted when my 18 year old son decided he knew more about life than I do. I wished him the best of luck on his journey, and told him to keep in touch. if you're not going to school or working, you're not living here unless you earn your way. that wasn't his idea of a good time, so...
I tell her that is awesome that she wants to be a SAHM but an education is important because we never know what life has in store for us and she needs to be able to be independent if that need ever arises.
I'd tell her the best place to find a man who will be able to supprt her is in college.
Quoting Johariz:I'd tell her that it was fine.
She's 18 and technically an adult.
I would wonder what happened to her goals and dreams? And I'd ask that she at least reconsider and at least give college a try before turning down a remarkable offer (the scholarship).
But sorry to say it--at 18, it's ultimately their choice.
