My approached me recently and told me he wants to join the ARMY.....whick I support him on 100%....what I dont like is the fact that he says he is going to marry his girlfriend before he leaves for basic training.....dont get me wrong it is not that I dont want to let go of my son or hate her .....she is lazy she quit school (she is 17) she quit at 15!!! she was home schooling for a while but now does nothing with it.....my son tried to get her a job twice where he works so they could save up some money and get a place when she turns 18.....she got deathly sick until the moment he called his boss to say she wasnt coming and then she was all better....then she tells my son that she is above working at a fast food place!!!!!she is worried about how she will get money whiile he is in basic and is pissed because I will be put on his checking acct (this is at HIS request not mine) so I can pay his car payment and insurance while he is in basic......she enjoys going to the skating rink and mall while he is at work then comes back to tell him how many guys talked to her flirted with her or grabbed her in some way......but my son stays home if she is away at a family function or something...he dont go out looking for attention......her mother dont want her moving back in with her because she is "free of children" and is into a party lifestyle....she lives with her sex offender dad and I think she sees my son as a "way out" .....daddy refuses to sign papers for them to marry because then her friends that he drools over wont be there anymore ....but to "get rid of her" (moms exact words) she will sign the papers for them to marry.....I just dont want my son caught up in this .....I have asked him to please wait until after basic and then if he feels the same I will support it.....but he wont tell me either way.....I am afraid that he will marry her and not tell me until he returns from basic.....a coworker said I should call his recuiter and ask him to talk to him but I would be afraid that he wouldnt do it or he would tell him that I called and what I said.......any advice??
