prenup - definitely not romantic, but it would be a wise step to have a prenup signed before the marriage.
In regards to the parents who expect their child to be home by 11:00 for the night of homecoming it could be that they are expecting their child to be compliant with whatever curfew laws exist where they live? Or maybe the child has broken enough rules that the parents are being somewhat restrictive? It's not up to to a columnist to determine what is reasonable or not between parents and their children as long as its not abusive.
Honestly, it sounds like this parent is worried about her daughter marrying out of her class more than anything. Love doesnt know class and you should be happy that she finally found love. At 45 she is most likely smart enough to make an adult decision. Congrats to your daughter, everyone deserves happiness.
I dont believe this curfew is the worst. I understand you want to stay until the end but your parents are being reasonable. I have known teens that didnt even get to go to their homecoming etc, so you should feel blessed. You are also probably at an age where your parents are trying to figure how you handle such social situations. Remember the better you handle this, the more slack they may have next time. Also,you shouldnt be putting so much energy into trying to figure out how to manipulate the parents into giving in you should be thinking of ways to impress them so that next time they may be more flexible.
At 45 and single still its obvious she hasnt found anyone in her clique, as her parents state. So why wait? if she is sure. its her call at 45! whats the worse that can happen? divorce at 46. learning lesson then.
