Our daughter has been married to this "person" who is a total looser. He has stolen money from our daughter's bill money, cheated on her several times, doesn't work, can't hold a job when he does work, has nothing in his name, has a criminal record, and is now in AA. He stole our daughters car the nite before T-day to stay at another woman's house, got drunk, called our daughter and told her it was over. We went to the house on T-day morn. to retrieve the car and ended up calling the police. Within 2 days, he is back in her house. We don't understand, and are afraid for our grandson, as well as our daughter. We need to understand, can anyone help me sort through this because we are financially and emotionally tapped out helping her and supporting this slug of a son-in-law.We don't know what to do - tough love has not worked in the past.Answer Question

I would suggest counseling for your daughter to find out why she accepts a man treating her in such a manner. I use to put up with a lot of BS off of men & take them back. I found out I was extremely co-dependent. Most men like this that have an enabling partner such as your daughter is to him are abusive. Look into the resources available at a women's crisis center for domestic violence. Give her the information. It is up to her then to make choices & decisions. You can't do the work or changing for her. Like someone else said don't enable her to stay with him. It isn't emotionally healthy for her or any kids involved. Here is a link to get started finding information.
