You can refuse to sign for her. But once she's 18, that's her decision.

I would just say you're not going to let her... she can marry him when she's old enough to not need parental consent to get married.

Say no. Oh dear lord say no. My mom let me at 17 and he left me less than two years later.

Once she turns 18 it won't be your decision. Ask her to at least wait until she is a legal adult.
