If your teenage (between the ages of 14-17) daughter/son confessed to you that they were gay and that they were dating someone who they plan on marrying after that graduate high school or college, how would you feel about it?

Which would bother you more: that they are gay or all ready committed to someone at such a young age?

I wouldn't care if my son told me he was gay but what I would care about is him being in a committed relationship at such a young age. I don't believe that teens should be serious with anyone until they at least graduate high or college.

What if they get tied down at such an early age and then regret it years later?

Not alot of high school sweethearts stay married after a certain amount of time. They grow apart and realize that they aren't happy with each other anymore.

What if they are tied down to someone and there is someone better for them out there in the world?

I'd be upset on both accounts so I chose other.

Um, wtf did I just read? You are purposefully raising players?

Gay or not...no committed relationships until after highschool. PERIOD. My boys can date, but they can't take the same girl out twice in row. House rule.

I don't care who my son marries, so long as it's for love. At that age, there's a chance it won't last. But if it did, then good for him!

I wouldn't mind it at all. Them being in a committed relationship? It depends, if they're like Edward and Bella(you know thar weird obsession with each other) I would have a problem, but if they were just for each other, and it didn't mess up their education it would be fine.

id be ok with him being gay, and in a commited relationship right NOW, but i wouldnt be ok with marriage straight out of high school. that would be whether hes gay or straight actually.

I would take it one day at a time. It would bother me more about the commitment level, because I want my son to go to college and only focus on himself and his future right out of HS.

I'm sort of stunned by that comment too.  

Training your boy to not get invested in a girl makes zero sense to me.

How will they learn to be loving partners if you teach them they shouldn't get attached???

I got "engaged" twice at that age...neither would bother me. Committed relationship means she/he isn't the school slut at least.

My husband and I were high school sweethearts and this will be our 13th year of marriage.  My best friend is a gay man who as been married for 15 years, since we were 18.  I am surrounded by people who fell in love and married young.  I also know that just because kids say that they are committed and want to get married it doesn't mean that it will happen.  Then there is the fact that it's my child's life to live.  All things considered, nothing would bother me.  I'd just offer my support for whatever she needed.

 I'd never condone a marriage right after HS, no matter my child's sexual orientation.
