PostSubject: My daughter   Thu Jan 21, 2016 1:04 pm

She's been with a guy for a little over 2 years now. She met him at work -she was his occupational therapist (he was injured while working on base as a Marine). Unfortunately he's milked the injury for benefits, played my daughter with the sympathy card - she works 10 hour days and comes home to have to make her own dinner, he does nothing around the house, she has to clean and wash clothes... everything. He sits around and plays video games all day. Well, recently he's been exhibiting dangerous behaviors which leaves us, her parents, very worried and concerned. Last night was the last straw for her (FINALLY!!) as he hurt himself to make a point to her -she had to call 911 and they 5150'd him. Which, of course, now he's pissed that she called 911.

So, they talked, they're done, but he's still hanging around until he can "figure out a plan".  We obviously don't like this arrangement, but she's an adult (27) and can make her own decisions, so we're backing off. But I'm super worried that this unstable freak could hurt her.

Thank you for prayers, or even suggestions on this. I realize there's several scenarios that could come out of this, but we're hoping for the best case.

Wow, that is really intense.  I hope and pray that her time apart from him will clear her mind give her the clarity and perspective to see just how bad he is for her and that it's not her place to try and "save" him.

Praying that she will be safe, and that she can get rid of this guy soon. Tell her next time you get to pick her boyfriend.

Thanks all. Yeh it IS turning into quite the soap opera. Sheesh !
Now he's just floundering. She's not doing anything and won't communicate with us to keep us in the loop. He's manipulating her to stay per her Dad (who's been very good about going over there and getting into their business... thank God for him).
I've personally decided that since she ain't gonna listen to any of us, what's worrying going to do ? My wife has been a nervous wreck cuz she thinks there's going to be a fatal phone call, or the police at our door with "news". I've thought this too, but I can't make her decisions for her.
This is her 2nd horrible relationship, this one is way worse than her first. I don't "get" why she won't just kick him out.


I sent her a text asking why this is playing out the way it is... I fear she's gonna be a bit ripped at me, but I don't care at this point.

We had a very nice heart to heart with her Friday night. We apparently said something that hit the right nerve, cuz instead of waiting until Sunday to tell him to pack his stuff and git, she went home that night and told him.
He's taking it good so far and is cooperative.

I pray this moves along fast and he can get on with his life, and my girl can start actually having a life of her own. No more charity cases that take total advantage of her !  My wife is gonna have some good Mother-Daughter dates with her soon and point out what she needs to focus on in life right now. Should go well.

Good to hear, I hope she can get him out without any (more) trouble.

And hey, if she does have any trouble with him... maybe we could have a CHM family reunion/protective posse to send him a message! afro
