Handling Teen Relationships
« on: Fri Dec 30, 2011 - 20:02:59 »
My son has fallen for a girl in college.  They love spending time together and are good for each other, but now her friends back home are telling her ex that she is seeing someone else. My son's girlfriend said they have to keep the relationship a secret now, so her ex doesn't get mad.  She is choosing her ex, who she still wants to be friends with over her new relationship.  It's tearing my son's heart out and he is so depressed, and she makes him feel like it's not her fault.  He does everything for her and said he will deal with seeing her in secret for now.  Her ex doesn't want to see her.  She is young and scared to venture out of the comfort of her home town, where she continues to be depressed and has lots of drama.  My son is making her happy, yet she keeps getting pulled back home to keep her friends happy over her own life.  I am asking for prayers and advice That they are both emotionally strong enough to handle this relationshop and they find God for support to keep them from falling into a deep depression, that his girlfriend puts the past behind her and opens her eyes to the good of the future w him.  That they treat each other w respect, love and caring, and she chooses to put him first in her life over her ex, that is truly a bad influence for her.  I just want them to be happy together without all the secrets and drama from her firends and ex.  I want to talk with both of them but am not sure what to say or if I should even get involved.  It saddens me to see them both wanting to be together but having this pull from her friends and ex.

Dear Father, I come to You tonight requesting Your help with this young couple. Help them to make right decisions that will glorify You, and protect them in the way their lives lead them whether it be together or apart. Help this mother to know and give the right advice that will not sever their relationship, and to be the godly support for them as they allow her. Show her how to wait on Your will to be done in their lives, and I say this for her sake that all things work together for good to them that love You. Have You way in their lives that will bless them and their families all their days, and I ask this and give You the praise for it in Jesus' name. Amen.

Advice dear sister is for you to wait until asked to offer solutions, as many times what you mean for good may not be taken in that manner, and many times young people are just looking for someone or something to blame for their failures. One way to subtly help when asked is to ask what they think about the situation, what they think they should do, and that will give you the clue or key to what they're seeking because I could near guarantee you that they already know all the answers. At that time you can continue asking questions that may open their eyes to your experience and wisdom, and they will think they figured it out by themselves. Welcome to these forums; it's good to have you with us.
