Is it wise for a single mother to send her only bipolar son to a foreign land for building a career and marriaige with a foreigner?
His bipolar really has nothing to do with it unless you are implying he is not capable of providing for himself.
I'd give thought to a couple of things here.
First, is his Bipolar Disorder well managed enough that he could leave home, pursue a career and a family in his home? If so, why would it be necessary for him to go away to do so? Also, if he goes to a foreign country, will he have family and friends there to support him? If so, are they knowledgeable about his illness and capable of helping him through difficult times?
Overall, he may have to make the decision on his own, if he's capable of doing so.
But pray for wisdom, and peace especially.
Thanks for the post Motown. I do have to answer these quiries first. His bipolar is managed with medication but problem is he cannot regularly remember to take his medicine all by himself. He needs to be under vigilence to make sure he takes the pills regularly. He needs support.
Perhaps he will do well. How old is he?
Foreign countries and foreigners are not always negative.
If his illness is managed he should do ok anywhere in the world - we have only got one world. Why don't you go with him at first? Annie
Pray about what you should do. God bless you and your son.
If it is an arranged marriage, are the family trust worthy, does the bride have a good and caring nature? It might be too much for a young bride to cope with and would not be good for him. It is a difficult choice, I think if I were the mother I would take some time to think but more importanty as the man is 32 years old it must be his decision- I do hope all goes well
Case1worker makes a very good point.
The other point I would raise is that would your son be accepted into the community and environment where he lives. Closeby where I live there is sadly a lot of underlying racism within the community with people believing the welfare systems should not be supporting foreigners- that is something your son could have potential difficulty dealing with.
I don't know, but I think it is worth a try for him. Those of us who are not "normal" need to learn how to cope. He is full grown now, and a man must walk out his destiny. Sometimes a good wife is the key to success for a man.
I will join you and the others who will lift him up in prayer . . . you, too . . . so you won't be lonely. I am sorry that I can't be of more help.
@kulsum honestly i dont think forum is place to get ur answer...it would be opinions...ask expert on this...i get and fully understand that it is critical decision for u and u should rely of experts for it ...
Thank you pisean for your suggestion. I do think you are right. Actually I have decided to maintain a status quo on this and allow some time to go by before making a final decision on it.With time the picture would become clear and God will give me some insight. Also as you have suggested I will talk to his doctor and get his expert councel and advice. Thanks again.
