    • Have a talk with him. But he is 31 years old, so not sure how much you can really say to change his mind. Hes old enough to make this dicision on his own. I wouldn’t like this situation If It was me either. I mean really? Nude pics on FBohhhh

    • OMG honey ....... why the rush ?
      I take it the rush is because he knows in his heart you all disapprove .....
      I'm so sorry honey this is happening to you - is there anyone your son would listen to who is not  family but maybe his old coach / teacher/ pastor  who could talk to him and get him to wait and have a cool off period ......

    • First off Hellllllllllllllllo Bfly missed ya! Its so good to see you here once again. Now to the question I understand your stance here on the subject and of course we as parents want the best for our children, and yes he is a grown man able to make his own choices, yes its hurts knowing the slutish background of this woman, but its his life and his choice we can’t chose our childrens mates or live out their lives for them. He has to go through life and make mistakes in order to learn and grow from them we as parents have to know and understand that we can’t protect them from everything been there done that! LOL, and again its his life and his choice, if we don’t let them do as they feel they want to do resentment will set up in them towards us, so we must learn to step back and just be there for them when the worst happens, yes be prayerful be supportive, but you must let him make his own decisions. Gods blessings to you and him and the whole matter I’ll be praying for you all as well.

    • Good to see you back Bfly!
      Wow, what an aweful situation!!!  It sounds like all you can do is pray for them both.  Maybe your son is just the influence she needs in her life?

    • I’m so sorry that this is happening. I will definitely keep you all in prayer.

      It’s hard when your child becomes an adult and you can’t really dictate how they live their life. All you can do is be supportive and let them know you love them no matter what.

    • As my grandmother used to say, “Let ‘em bump.” If he has seen her Face Book page and it doesn’t bother him, it shouldn’t bother you. He’s an adult and even though the old saying love hides all faults can be true, it can also change people. Since the divorce rate is rather high, I hope he takes his time before jumping the broom with her, make sure it’s really what he wants.

    • I’d probably not be happy about it but I would still talk to my child and hope things turned out all right.

    • My initial reaction is ... He’s thinking with the wrong head!  

      He obviously knows about her FB photos & friends and over looks it or he wouldn’t want to marry her, I guess. Hard to know what’s going on but I’d be praying for them both!

    • If he could avoid marrying her, I’m sure he will be tired of her soon.  Not good!
