Wow, my 25 year old boy called tonight to talk about asking his girlfriend to marry him. First, I had a feeling this conversation was coming based on what I could tell from what I saw from their relationship over the last year. They have been dating for over a year now, both in their PHD program, and I can tell they are soul mates. Oh my. Second, that's my first son. Is he ready.... My little buddy is thinking about such grown up stuff. Any parents going through the same stuff? Oh, they grow up so fast.......
But it's nice that he feels fine about confiding in you so it looks like you've been raising him right.
Ask him when she's going to propose to him. 😀😀
Hit the brakes at “soul mates. “
LOL. No, I raised him to first ask her mom and dad first. Once done, it’s up to him to ask.
Best gift of life is grand children.
I have 2 daughters and couldn’t ask for a better 3rd daughter..... Just saying.
Amen, brother freeper. I’m 53 and can’t wait for Grand Child!!! God’s bblessings.
Congrats. May they live long and prosper. I didn’t make that one up. I stole it somewhere.
Good Lord if you love him, talk him out of it.
Marriage is awful for men. Today there is no upside, all risk is on him. Major chance he’s divorced within ten years and she cleans him out, and God help him if he has kids cause he won’t hardly see them but its 20 years of payments to her.
Stop him from going through with it. Periodic sex that tapers off after a few years is just not worth it.
Oh give it a rest,you never stop.
Good luck to that young man.
Boy that is too bad. My life is so much better than it would have been without my wife. On more than on occasion I’ve described our lives like two knights, back to back in the middle of a field battling off all of the bad things coming at us..each having each other’s back. I know she’s there without looking, she’s got my back.
Wow, Secret. Really? I’ve been been married for almost 30 years and don’t regret one day. When I said “I do” it was for life. Ups and downs, sure. But I wouldn’t change one thing about it.
Yes, marriage is awful for *some* men.
FR is one of the last places to bring up the topic of marriage. And never raise the subject on a Friday or Saturday night. That's when the 'I hate all women' stories come out.
Fortunately, many people have healthy and enjoyable marriages. Those people are enjoying life and they're busy playing with their grandkids.
Can I tell you a Secret? LOL
Good for your son! You and your spouse must have been a good example of marriage for him to choose this step. My daughter married her high school sweetheart at age 18. They became close friends in 5th grade, and seven years later they took the leap. They have been married seven years, two little ones who are four and two, he has a masters degree and is a CPA, she is a stay at home wife and mom. They adore each other and are raising children in a Christ centered home.. Oh, and they have not one penny of debt. There are a lot of messed up mellenials in the world today, but there are some really awesome ones as well. Congratulations!!
Wrong wrong wrong
The right woman is the key to life in a never ending bliss state
I don’t know any of the principals. Last time I heard soul mates, the two had gotten matching sunburst tattoos around their navels and shared a meth habit and hepatitis C.
No such thing.
Go sit back down.
Sounds like they are both mature enough to make the right decision.
