Is It Wrong To Date A Single Parented Child?

By - - [ Relationship ]

I've liked this girl for a long time and we have been very close since childhood,  but the issue there is that she is the only child of her parents. Due to this I've been unable to seek the parents for my request to start a relationship with her, though she has agreed but her parents are the stopping block to our relationship. 

After seeking the parents, they said  I should not put her in mind and should have nothing to do with her. Why? I asked, they said its because she is the only child that they have and they can't afford to loose her.  I told them all is going to be well. The girl also assured then but they insisted..

Is it wrong if I date her??

If you love her then you can date her, there is nothing wrong with dating the only child but you both have to find a way to convince them.

You need them to tell you the main reason behind them not wanting you to be ui a relationship with their child, you have to assure them, prove to them you love their child and you won't do anything to hurt her. Parents will always want something good for their child, I guess they want someone good and protective and if you can be, they will be happy.

Is never wrong to date a only child, her parents should understand that the child have her future, and life to live. her parents should not be over protective in other not to destroy the child future, happiness and life. her parents have no right in making decisions for there child, freedom of choice should be there because she is not going to live all her life with her parents.

It's never wrong to date a single parented child and it's not wrong if you go ahead to date her. Her parent are just trying to protect her so she won't end up heartbroken when issue of breakups occur, it's would definitely be a sad thing to see their only child in such situation. So if you know you really love her and willing to stay with her faithfully, go ahead. Otherwise it's better to just let it go now.

Why can't you date one with a single parent. the parent cannot marry the child, he/she must marry someday. So every child has the reason to be happy with his/her partner and not constrained by the parent except the child also wants to be alone.

My opinion is, if you truly that child as u said, why don't you  give  him sometime to grow up to a mature lady in that way the parent will understand that you truly love their daughter in that way they  will give you the change to have her..thank you..

It is not wrong to date an only child.if you really love her pls go back to her parents and make your intentions known to them that u will take care of their only child and u will try your possible best to take care of them too.

If they still refuse, and you really still love her and she loves you too ,please get her pregnant.im sure the parents will be the ones begging you to come and pay her bride price .

It is not even wrong to marry a single parent. What matters is understanding and maturity. If you guy love each other why not. All you have to do is adopt the baby so he/she can be yours legally before someone will come later to take custody. Intact it will help the mother knowing that someone loves her even after the mistake she had made

Don't they want you to date her because she's their only begotten daughter or because they don't like you, but using that as an excuse? The fact that it is their only child doesn't stop her from getting married, unless the father wants to get married to her own daughter. There's nothing as bad as having in-laws who don't like you. If they don't want you to date her, then let her go. It might take time, but you will get over it.

There is nothing wrong with wanting a relationship with a lady in such category. In so far she possesses what you desire in your partner. And on the other hand, you wouldn't blame the parents of the lady as they are just being careful and want the best for their child. Ultimately, the largest of the work resides with the guy and the lady as you must have been convinced that your decision is right. And if that is the case, you will need to be patient with the parents for eventually they will come around.

it's not wrong if it's genuine love, by the way parents can't decide the future of the girl. But then all this been said he shouldn't play with the girls heart, because one thi g you don't want is having an angry family man following you.

There is nothing wrong with dating her but her parent are scared cos they don't want their only child to get hurt

You have to let the parent fully understand your level of love for her with 100% assurance her heart and everything about her is safe with you 

You have to let her parent know she need a real man like you with the fact that she have to give them grandchildren as their only daughter

There is nothing wrong in dating single parented woman in as much as there's affection between the partners. In fact such a woman is said to be a better wife as she might have learnt her mistakes from the previous marriage an turn a new leave.

I think the girl parent is only concerned about your faithfulness and seriousness about their daughter. If you have serious plans to marry her and make her your wife, you should be allowed to date her. No parent would want their daughter to end up as a single parent also

Is not wrong if you date her, yes it's fine but marrying her is the koko. Would you eventually be able to marry her? We have to understand the differences between dating and marrying. And if you really love her and you think you want to marry her and she's also convinced and ready, I think the battle is half won then! You both have to combat against the principalities and powers of the parents.

There's nothing wrong in dating a single parent led child, in fact I don't think it should be a criteria for dating someone. Love doesnt really care if she's a single parented child or not, as long as you love her you can as well date her if you both want to.

I don't think dating a single child would be a problem other than watching out for being on her parents cross list. 

Her parents should have been rest assured upon your visit to them concerning dating their daughter the might have some other thing in mind though maybe planning their daughter marriage with their family friends son.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with dating a single child of the parent. The parent reasons for stopping you from dating or marrying her is not convincing since they will not still be the one to marry her. Maybe they have someone in mind for there daughter.

It's not wrong to date a person raised by a single parent but there's a possibility that the parent has instilled the mentality that a woman\man is not important in your life so this can lead to an abusive relationship or single hood all their lives(independence).😔

Those are power beyond you and more than your own opinion.... One of the question you need to ask yourself is am I really ready, the parents are trying to protect their daughter from whatever it is the hazards out there from young men of our generation. Moreso you can persist it might be that they want to see how much you love her it could be either way

Nothing wrong about that and what made to say that they can't afford to loose her is because of the affection they have for her been the only child. What I think the should do here is to consult the elder ones in thetheir to intervene in this matter and make her parent to let go of her since she is of marriageable age. All you need to do as a guy is to exercise patience.

It's not wrong to date her, but their parents refusal might be that of insecurity. They don't think their child would be safe in your hands. You know as an only child, they need a man who would be able to safeguard their child. So you need to work on yourself more, and prove to them that you can do it. And don't forget to involve God.

There's nothing wrong with dating her or getting into a relationship with her, all you just have to do is ensure you don't get too attached to the girl cause her parents would definitely try to split you guys and you should also love the girl with all your heart so that you can prove to her parents that their only child is with a good guy and won't be hurt and lastly if none of this works out move on with your life her parents might have other reasons why they don't want you with her and this can be a sign that she's not the right girl for you
