Simon's Blog - September 25, 2007

September 25, 2007

So this is weird - did you know that Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving in the beginning of October? I had no idea until my mom told me we're going to be having Thanksgiving dinner a little early this year - in Ontario!

I don't live that far from the Canadian border, but I've been to Mexico way more times than I've ever been the Great White North. In fact, I've only ever been to Canada once when I was about 10. We drove there and only stayed for the afternoon. I don't remember much about it. Anyway, this time we're going to spend the weekend with my aunt and uncle, who just moved up there after my uncle's work transferred him.

Apparently it's only going to take us about four hours to drive to Toronto and then we'll stay there for three nights. The best part is that we don't have to go to any lame Columbus Day parades this year! I guess I should Google Toronto and see what to expect there. All I know about Canada is they're a lot like us, but really into hockey. I guess I should have paid a little more attention in geography. Or did we learn about Canada at all in geography? Wow, I really wasn't paying attention.

We only have limited time to do touristy stuff because we have the big Thanksgiving dinner to do. Have any of you been Toronto? Maybe you even live there? and let me know your recommendations for what to do! I'll let you all know how it goes!

Later,
Simon

    Dear Dish-It In The Forums

    While engagement isn't illegal for juveniles, marriage is as you can already tell. Judging by your feelings, I don't think the relationship will last long enough for him to be able to wait. I heard some courts will allow it, depending on location. Knowing whether her engagement is okay is a tricky thing. She seems pretty confident in the relationship. As for your own feelings, how well do you know him? Do you have any knowledge about him outside their love life? Do her parents know anything about him? If you don't now the answers, don't be afraid to ask them to her or her parents. I'm also a 16-year-old girl and I don't feel comfortable with it. Many young adults have a hard time understanding the transition from  teen to adult, but if he's put his problems on her, that's a bad sign. I don't think 5 months is long enough in my opinion and I think this could lead to making bad habits in a relationship. I appreciate that you're trying to help your friend be safe. Hopefully some of her closest people will help her with you. They don't necessarily have to steer her against him, but they should help guide her into deciding what's best ad how to carry on from that.

    I don't even think that legal for a adult to marry a teen I think you should ask that part to make sure my theory is correct

    Do your parents know her parents? Maybe you could get your parents to speak to hers. Or if not, maybe tell her parents yourself that you're concerned. Try speaking to her and making sure she's 100% sure about what she's doing?

    So last year my friend got engaged at the age of sixteen to a guy of twenty-one and they only dated for 5 months at the time. I'm afraid she's making a mistake. They're still together, but her guy seems like he has a temper and might get abusive in the future.  What should I do?
