  • Well , If you are not happy at home and neither is your daughter , then maybe you both should move out. If he has been mean to her ( and you I am guessing) for a long time then it is time to take back your life and move on. Nobody needs negativity in their lives. It is a major decision , but I would think on it .

  • I think it's horrible that your husband has said those things to your daughter, and about her boyfriend. No wonder she doesn't like him. I wouldn't either. I would probably smack him if he said something like that to me. Put yourself in her place. She is going to get out of that house any way she can, as soon as she can. Maybe you should take the first step, and leave if you aren't happy, and take her with you. You don't want her running off and getting married just to get away from her dad. The situation isn't going to get any better. Good luck in whatever you do.

  • She's somewhat of an adult. now you should really let her have her choice of whom to date. and just hope everything goes well with them. You should trust her with her choices. Tell dad that she's not a little girl anymore. and to let her make her mistake herself if thats what he thinks she's doing.that way she'll learn from them. gl
