My fiancée doesn't want my daughter at our wedding: Ask Ellie

  My fiancée doesn't want my daughter at our wedding: Ask Ellie I’m an older man with a grown daughter who was not a very big part of my life (due to her mother’s infidelity and refusal to allow visitation — after multiple court battles and one contempt charge). I’ve met someone and we are planning to get married. But recently my fiancée informed me that she did not want my grown daughter to be at the wedding (nor any of my friends, either). My fiancée has been most insistent that I try to have a relationship with my daughter, but that the relationship would not include her (i.e. the fiancée).

Over the Christmas holidays my 18 - year - old daughter , Claire, brought her boyfriend home to meet her father and I for the first time. She'd already told us that she'd been dating him since early November, and that he's 50 years old working in a local chip shop.

High school graduates are eighteen. Eighteen year - olds are kids who have no idea what they’re doing with their life. Your daughter and this boy are similar in age, and likely have similar interests. I know fifteen year - old guys who have dated eighteen year - old girls.

She'd already told us that she'd been dating him since early November, and that he's 50 years old working in a local chip shop. She also revealed he's unmarried, has no kids, lives in a council house and is a non-practising Christian.

Based on this information we knew straight away that these two were not together for 'the money', given his job and where he lives.

Claire said she liked him because he was gentle, funny and they had similar tastes in music; she also found his car pretty cool - it not quite a rustbucket but it was pretty close.

Dating Diaries: My date put his best foot forward — under my dress

  Dating Diaries: My date put his best foot forward — under my dress Angela is a 44-year-old small-business owner who lives in the west end. She says “My personal style is functional, clean and comfortable. That’s it.” Angela says she is “Fun, with a great sense of humour. I have two mottos: ‘Run into your life’ and ‘Say yes to everything.’ They get me in trouble sometimes.” When she isn’t working, which is rare, Angela likes to go rock climbing, take a class with a friend or a date — “a little friendly competition doesn’t hurt, conversation comes naturally, and you can learn a lot about someone” — and relax at home. She wants to date someone who is “youthful, fun, sexy and spontaneous, but mature and dignified.”I’ve been single for a few years.

And that if we had an 18 years old daughter who dated a an 18 years old boyfriend who carried all the above qualities it would be a dream which comes true. We can therefore agree that if the 50 years old man wasn’t anything of the above, the problem wouldn’t be his age, but his lack of the

That is a year older than me. I met her, and she is actually very nice and in love with my son. If I had grown up in this town, we would have been in school My daughter was not happy about leaving her friends and starting a new school midyear. It's been a difficult time for both of us, but I was grateful for

The meal went OK - even pleasant. We didn't act judgmental, but still I couldn't stop thinking about the age gap. He's 33 years older than her and four years older than her dad!

Later, Claire told us this man is her soulmate. She wants to marry him in two years when she graduates from university, and she wants to have his kids despite what anyone else thinks - including her parents.

I thought things might change when she found out my husband liked him but even that doesn't put Claire off. If anything it's seemed to make her like her boyfriend more!

I know she hasn't really considered the reality of an age-gap relationship.

Our daughter has career ambitions. She wants to work in business at a managerial level or a job organising conferences or writing about management for business journalism. No one can say she's not a woman who knows what she wants.

  How Katie Holmes Got in A**-Kicking Shape — Physically and Mentally How Katie Holmes Got in A**-Kicking Shape — Physically and MentallyAs a teenager, she was thrown into the spotlight thanks to her starring role in the '90s coming-of-age drama, Dawson's Creek. After five seasons, and a string of failed relationships, she married superstar (and possibly slightly insane scientologist) Tom Cruise. Five-ish years after their daughter Suri was born, the two went through a very public divorce.

Yes, I am only 18 years old , but my maturity level is of someone who is much older. If I had to choose an age of my maturity level I would say late 20s. My life has thrown me some things that has forced me to grow up quicker than most teenagers. I had to become emancipated at 16, pay for EVERYTHING

Your 14 year old should not be dating a 22 year old regardless of whether they are male or female. There is something wrong when someone that age is attracted to someone who is 14. I’m not saying he is a malicious pedophile seeking out young girls to molest.

She keeps reiterating she's in it for the long haul - and if she ends up with him and as a mum on Centrelink after she graduates, then so what?

How do I handle this sensitively? I only want the best for my daughter.

Is It OK To Date Someone You're Not Attracted To? .
As much as fairy tales and rom-coms make us want to believe in love at first sight, we're pretty sure that's a myth.As long as you're going for the right reasons and not just to get a free meal, Seattle dating coach Kate Stewart says that it's 100% still worth it.
