Re: Opinions needed--Daughters' potential boyfriend
One thing I've learned is that young teens/adults will hear your words, might even appear to agree with them, then they'll go do what they want anyway.
Your daughter appears to have little life experience in regards to relationships. She has her goals though and that's great. Let her make her choices, support her when she fails, cheer her on when she succeeds.
The end goal of marriage seems to be important to her. I can understand that. She's forgetting or hasn't yet learned one very important part of that is choosing the right partner, unless she incorporates divorce into her goals.
I don't think this is something that can be taught, it's something that has to be lived. You've had your chance to teach her what a good relationship should look like, if you haven't done that by now, she will just have to make her own mistakes until she gets it.
