My daughter started seeing a guy (her first boyfriend) when she was 17 against our wishes.Which begs the question: Settling for a deadbeat loser is like settling for a job you hate.There are way too many people who hate their jobs and keep on doing them, just like there are way too many women who settle for men who treat them poorly.He has lied to me and to my parents, and has strained Dawn's relationship with our family by constantly making her choose between either him or us.Dawn worked hard to earn her master's degree and is now earning a great salary; her fiance has no education beyond high school, constantly switches jobs and uses my sister for financial support.She has changed her cell number and refuses to talk to or even look at us.DEAR ABBY: My sister, "Dawn," recently got engaged to a man I detest. I don't trust him, and I believe he is controlling her.
His background check says he’s been in prison two times for drugs and bad checks.I have spoken to her multiple times in the past about my concerns, and at one point made it clear that I wouldn't attend her wedding.Now that Dawn has decided to move forward with the relationship, am I required to go? -- OPPOSED IN NEW YORK DEAR OPPOSED: Go to the wedding.I’ve already canceled her insurance but my parents added her on their policy. I will only pay for her orthodontist and that’s it. He is a lazy, no good bum and I think he is on drugs.My daughter is a good girl; she works and goes to college but lets him brainwash her into hating her dad and me.
