Without the official "wife" status.
She just turned 18, just graduated high school, and just announced on FB this morning that she's moving across the country to be with her boyfriend, who was transferred to a base out there. I think he's 19. I don't think they've been together that long, but I'm not sure.
I'm trying to be supportive but it's so weird! I mean, she's a smart girl and things could very well work out wonderfully between them (I've been with my husband since I was 17 so I shouldn't be concerned about her age), it just seems like a big move for her to make.
I don't know that there's a point to this post... I'm just surprised, I guess. I hope she at least goes to university there, or something, so that she's not just there for him, you know? It could be a good life experience for her, even if they were to break up, if she handles it right.
Any suggestions on tactful, supportive ways I can encourage her to look into educational opportunities, if she's not already?
