my niece

  1. I'm sorry, I couldn't find the thread where I talked about my niece calling off her wedding.

    I heard from my brother today and he said that my niece has enrolled in college MAJORING IN NURSING (i'm so proud...I wonder which one of us will graduate first). He said that her boyfriend (formally known as groom to be) had moved back to Colorado and they will be getting an apartment soon. HUH?!?!?! My brother also stated that he gave the "groom to be" a job at his company. HUH?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    I told my brother to tell my niece to email me.

    I thought for sure he would stay in Utah!

    Well, at least she enrolled in college, and is majoring in nursing! Yay!!!!

    I want to hear more about this apartment situation, etc. As far as I know, the wedding is still off!

    Thank you Renee...all prayers are welcome.

    LVRN, how's Emma?

    My 17 y/o niece was getting married next month. We (my family) have all be up in arms over the whole thing because the groom to be talked her out of going to college. They moved from CO to UT at the end of last year, so he could work for his Dad and eventually take over the business. My niece, homesick, missing her friends and family, and realized she would have a dead-end life if she stayed in UT. She started wanting to go to colleg, but the closest one was about 2hrs away. Finally, she told him she wanted to go to school, and he basically said that if she went back to CO he wouldn't marry her. She moved back to CO a day later.

    Now she's enrolled in college back in CO, majoring in Nursing!!! She originally wanted to be a mortician, I kept talking about how I changed my major to nursing...maybe I had some sort of influence. He's apparently followed her back to CO and they are getting an apartment, my brother hired him at his company...and we're waiting to see what happens. My brother said since she called off the wedding, the relationship is strained, niece is enjoying her new found freedom (smart girl). I'm still waiting to hear from my niece.

    Oh, my. 17 is SO young to get married - he did her a favor by giving her the ultimatum. And once she's a nurse she can make her own way and choose a man who supports that (or perhaps she'll get (lucky?) and this one will grow into that kind of man - stranger things have happened!) )
