My daughter thinks about no one but herself in all aspects of life. Every time she meets a man, she marries him. This one she's only know for 6 months and ran off to the Justice of the Peace. She has 3 children (my grandchildren) which I am very concerned about.

I would be concerned also. Sounds like the kids have a revolving door of men in their lives. Not healthy. Hopefully they are not being neglected or abused. Your daughter may not make the best decisions ,but they are hers to make. It is hard to sit on the sidelines and be able to see things that others don't and not be able to intervene.

When the grandchildren are around, give them all the love and attention that you can. Maybe the next time, send your daughter and her husband to a hotel.

You still haven't answered the question: Why are you concerned for the children? Are they being abused? Neglected? left on their own for inordinate amounts of time? Have the exhibited any signs that you need be concerned?

Your daughter is an adult, and WELL into it at 40. If the kids are being loved and cared for, then you need to back off. If you DO feel that there is a concern about the kids, you can call for a welfare check on them.

BTW, I met my husband and married him within 6 months. Don't judge on length of relationship.

There maybe something your daughter is longing for. Something that she feels a marriage will give her. I agree with the others. If there is no need of concern for the children, you have to let your daughter live her life. Even if you don't approve.

Thanks Michelle. I have met this guy, in fact, she brought him to my house and he stayed in the bedroom the whole time while she waited on him. He never came out to meet or interact with me.

My Mum was on to number 3 at around that age. She is still married to him so maybe, instead of judging the relationship, get to know him first.
Like I said, she is a grown woman and can make her own life choices. Unless the children are in danger you need to back off and let her live her life the way she wants.
Yes, you are still her Mother but she is an adult!

Unless the children are in danger, there's nothing you can do.
I married my husband after 10 months and we are more in love than when we married. You can't judge her on that.
How many times has she been married?

My concern is that she hasn't known this man for long and don't know his background or where he came from, etc. Neither does she. She is 40 years old.

You can't control how your daughter lives her life.
My Mother sounds exactly like her though. She has to "Mrs" someone.

Why are you concerned for the children? What you have said here isn't a major reason for concern.
