My son informed me he wants to marry his first serious relationship girlfriend. He has two years left of high school, no job prospects, saying college is not for him, grades are C's. I've tried asking him why and how he plans to provide. I'm trying to keep our communication open. NO I do not want him marrying his girl. I married at 18 and two children and the age of 24 was divorced. I've tried to tell him to date more and wait until after college. He said he knows he will wait, but she is the one.
What can I do to keep the communication open and guide him towards college without saying I disapprove of the girlfriend's plan...she brought up marriage.
