How To Help Your Unmarried Child Find Love

My year-old daughter has never been married but has had relationships with men and women. My daughter is having a good time but knows that the relationship is going nowhere. I feel she is not thinking clearly and is not valuing herself. One of the hardest aspects of being a parent is recognizing that your children are their own people, and that no matter how differently you see things—or how much you want to protect them—they get to make life choices of their own.
Right now, your proposed strategy for communicating your concern and love for your daughter is through punitive action boycotting her boyfriend. Until you do as I wish, I will withhold something important to you. Instead, it shows a need to exert control, to erase her personhood from the equation.
What she tells you may be hard to hear. Perhaps in an ideal world, she would love to have children, but she may feel that that is not a likely path for her right now. If she eventually meets and falls in love with a younger woman, that may buy her time—and, of course, she can try to adopt children if she ends up with a same-age or older partner.
Maybe she demands that he say or do certain things when communicating with his wife, thus overstepping her role in the dissolution of their marriage. Maybe she insists on telling him what he should be getting in their divorce settlement or demonizes his wife whenever the topic of the divorce comes up. Let her know that you relate to how much better life seems when you go to sleep at night next to someone you love—and that she must really value having that in her life right now.
Ask her about the good things in the relationship and delight in her joy, because her joy is as real as your concern. If you make room between the two of you for a more balanced view of the relationship, both of you may be better able to tolerate the nuances of your relationships that feel so threatening to each of you right now for you, her happiness with her boyfriend; for her, your worries about him.
Sometimes when people are given the opportunity to talk openly in a safe and trusting context, they hear themselves more clearly, and they feel that an emotional burden they have been carrying alone has lifted. How are you feeling about that? Again: Just listen. I have no way of knowing from your letter whether this is a doomed relationship, but if it is, consider this: Most people who leave dead-end relationships do so not because somebody told them to—a parent, a close friend, a therapist—but because they were given the conditions in which to see their situation in all its complexity.
The most powerful truths—the ones people take the most seriously—are those they come to, little by little, on their own. With some helpful facilitation, your daughter will make the decision that feels right for her.

Dear Therapist: I Don’t Approve of My Daughter’s Boyfriend
As a wedding planner, Ann Westwood attends more than her fair share of nuptials. She confesses to shedding a tear or two as her brides walk down the aisle. At 32, Nicola, an actress, is far from finding Mr Right.
There are certain lessons only a mother can teach. A grandmother may not be as relatable, and a sister may not have enough wisdom — which is why it's up to Mom to initiate a heart-to-heart about matters of the heart. Although it can be a difficult subject to broach, your greatest gift to your daughter might just be the knowledge to face tough times and come out stronger. Here are the most important things young women need to know about love — and how to explain them. And that goes for not just significant others but also friends and family.
How Can I Help My Daughter Marry Well?
Kids , Motherhood , Teen. In: Kids. First, let me assure you we are not one of those families who wants to intimidate potential suitors. We believe they have the self-confidence to know their worth, and the wisdom to see through material advances such as fancy cars or lavish parties. I mean, really know you. That means you will have to share some meals at our dinner table and hold some conversations in our living room—and no honking from the driveway. We also want you to get to know us, so you understand how much our daughters mean to their father and I, and can appropriately appreciate the values of our family.
Mothers trying to find Mr Right for their daughters

Please pray for my beautiful 30 year old daughter who has everything to offer a man, but cannot seem to find and build a relationship with anyone she dates. She is so frustrated. She wants nothing more out of life than to marry and be a mom. Please pray that she remains patient, especially that a gentleman she liked so much can see what a good partner she would have been and to give her a second chance.
Prayer for my daughter who seeks a relationship.
I am convinced that one of the most crucial questions I face is, whom should my daughter marry? Notice I did not say, will but should. Far too often we think about the marriages of our daughters like pagan mystics. We close our eyes real hard and just hope against hope that the stars will align and the right man will come along.
