Torn

Today, my 19-year-old best friend decided she's going to elope with her 30-year-old, alcoholic boyfriend, who she's only been dating for 5 months. She wants me to go with her and be her maid of honor. She says she'll never speak to me again if I don't support her terrible decision. FML

I've been there and I've supported the terrible idea, making my concerns known, and I was still there when it fell apart. You can't stop her from doing what she'll do, but if you care about her you'll remain in a position to be there when she needs you.

I’m in the same position as you with an immature friend the same age, except for her trashy boyfriends never stay long enough to actually commit. She’s going to continue to make dumb decisions like this until she grows up. The best thing to do is to just let her know you think it’s a bad idea, but just accept that this is the kind of person she is.

Length of dating is irrelevant as well as age. I'm assuming he treats her like shit? And is he getting help for his alcoholism?

If he treats her like shit and isn't getting help, tell her "I love you and can't honor this .." and tell her why.

IF he's treating her right and getting help, be her maid of honor.
