pipeman525 - I will remember all of you in my prayers. First I want to say I realize I don't know you or your daughter your ex. or the young man or any of the circumstances that brought your family to this point, but... I have some food for thought. You obviously love your daughter very much and her best interest and happiness is all you want. The fact that you love her so much is the reason it is hurting so much. She is very young and perhaps she might never admit it but she is scared and she ran away because she thought she had to. I’m not pointing fingers at you or the young man or anyone else. But right now she needs to know that your love for her is unconditional and that no matter what, she always has a place with her dad if she chooses. Same goes for your ex. Tell her what she did yesterday does not dictate what she does tomorrow. There are 5 years between my wife and I as well, I was 24 and she was 19 when we got married. I know her parents weren’t thrilled about that either. And we had our first daughter 10 mos. later. We had our ups and downs over the years as well as two more children, and we have been married 31 years now. I guess we’ll try to stick it out…LOL !
