Daughter came home today and announced she had a broken heart. It seems that Flasher had to break their engagement today. His mother found out he was going with Daughter, and he's not allowed to date yet. I'd like to think this is the end of it, but I don't think that will be the case. After all, Flasher's mom heard about the engagement from Nice Guy, who punched Flasher in a disagreement over Daughter, resulting in Flasher being forbidden to spend time with him. I doubt the engagement will be off any longer than Nice Guy was banned.
At least Flasher's mom knew about the engagement before it was over. Since neither of them drive, neither is able to live independently, and they have never been a real date, I think the chances of them getting married anytime soon are slim to none.
Since the engagement is off, Daughter has decided that she does belong in this family and will stay-- at least for a while. It was a much better evening, which is good, since I had a couple here for premarital counseling and one of our youth dropped by to talk to me. Daughter actually did some chores.
