This to me is what a veto is. That is the description I know anyway. Someone who is struggling and asking their partner to go slow, consider their opinion and perhaps adjust who they spend time with as a result is stating their boundaries. If the OP trusts her to realize he is going on a path that is his own and that she will not be un wise with her requests then that to me is not a veto. Vetos are essentially ultimatums; my way or your new love is out!
