Long story short. My parents have been married for 24 years. I'm 21, my daughter is 6 months, I've been living at home because my daughters dad left us. Well my parents are getting divorced. My dad moved out yesterday, so now it's just me and my mom. My mom is known to make up crazy stuff and over react about stupid things (we just don't get along at all). Well I arranged to move in with my dad this weekend. My mom is throwing a fit saying that my dad watches porn (which he admitted), she thinks it's going to move into something worse (like a pedafile). My dad says he watches it because him and my mom no longer have sex, it wont be anything more than that and it's a normal guy thing and said he'd stop. (my dad has never lied and my mom is always making up crazy stuff). So, I don't know if I should still move in with my dad or if I should find another place to go. I can't afford to be on my own yet. Any advice?Answer Question

I would say as long as you cannot physically see you dad watching the porn there is very little reason to worry. Porn isn't for everyone but an adult male (or female) watching two adults partake in sexual activities certainly does not make them a pedophile.
Sounds like to me your mom may be trying to rally you to her side. My parents divorced after 20 years when I was 19 years old and trust me I still get put in the middle sometimes.
I'm sorry you are going through so much crap lately.
