Have you known someone who married and completely changed instantly?

She married an attorney, a selfish one who has to have everything his way. My daughter has changed completely and is pushing me out of their life. He and his mother have total controll and always have. He was previously married, has 2 girls, a troublesome ex, and expects he should be paid a ton to be a lawyer. He was asked to leave the firm he was with because of his attitude about money. My daughter has rescued him financially.
Her and I got along great. I saw or talked to her and my grand daughter everyday, now my daughter refuses to let me see my grand daughter, won't send me her soccer schedule, does not want me to talk ot r see her at all til she is good and ready. I suspect she will let this continue hoping my granddaughter will forget me. She is so hurt and cries all the time. I don't know what to do.

  • Sounds like your daughter is in a controling relationship. Unfortunately, this is something she has to realize on her own. Until that time, all you can do is show her you lover her.

  • Probably best to back off and let her learn the hard way. Just let her know you love her and your door is always open when she is ready. She will come around.
