i know im going to get alot of  responses and i look forward to that!My dd is gay shes 21 and she is in a relationship with a woman whos 18. My husband wont talk to her partner or talk to me about her being gay because he says that what shes doing is wrong. I disagree totally and just want her happy. Ive been married 22 years and i told her i will always be here for her , but it bothers me immensely that dh wont .I love my dh and wont leave him,but how can i make him see things different?

You can't force it. Hopefully time will mellow his view, but if not, I see a lot of anger in your future.

You cant. Continue to support your daughter. If Dad comes around great, if not...then so be it. You can't force anyone to accept anything.

Unfortunately you can't and the more you push the more he is going to push back. Let time take its course and hope for the best.

Like the others said, you can't. You can continue to support your daughter, but his feelings are his. In time, he may come around. It is sad that he feels this way right now  but people feel the way they feel. Some parents even  feel the same way about their hetero children's lives or partners. It's sad, but you and your daughter need to accept that it's the way it is for now.

Is he her dad?

Does he love her? He doesn't have to support her choices to love her.

How long has he known about her and her partner?

If it hasn't been long, he may just need time.

If it's already been a while, you're not going to change him.

Good luck.

I don't know...I couldn't imagine anything causingy dh to be that upset with our daughter that it would cause problems. He loves her unconditionally.

That's difficult, hopefully he'll come around. Continue to support her.
