- Wedding: November 2012
I truly appreciate those that responded to my post the other day concerning whether I should tell my adult daughter I am eloping. I called her today and told her and she told me she was not mad but was concerned that we were rushing things (we’ve dated for 4 yrs.). She cried a little and said that she would be fine after she processe the news but was very happy I told her beforehand and not afterward. I told her that I love her to the moon and back and this will not affect our relationship at all….my ex-husband does not help financially with any of her college or medical expenses and my fiancee is and has been very supportive and we help her together. I know in her heart it is hard to hear her mother is going to be married to someone other than her father but she also knows that he wanted the divorce and seems to be much happier in the midst of his mid-life crisis. Anyway, I was losing sleep over how to handle this so I sincerely thank you for your honest opinion and the explanations of why you felt the way you did. Although she is not thrilled she is happy I told her before and not after.
