Dear Abby: My 34-year-old daughter “Maddy” left what I thought was a wonderful marriage. Their six-year-old son is crushed. I know every story has two sides, but the whole family loves Glenn. Although he is a hard worker, he has a quiet and homely personality.
I think the lack of communication and lack of excitement was her problem. (She refuses to talk to me about this situation, so I’m just guessing based on the information I have.) This was their first marriage, but since high school, Maddie has had a long relationship. Most of them were like nice guys (she had a few guys), but when Maddie’s dad and I got to know them and fell in love with them, she dumped them. rice field.
I think Maddie is mad at me because I can’t get used to her latest guy. (He is now divorced.) He is significantly older than her and I don’t think this relationship will last. We’ve never been friends. She posts pictures of them together.
i hate what she did it really hurts me. How do I get over this and how do I handle the pressure from her to accept this new man? waiting in georgia
Dear Standby: Your number one priority is to create the most stable environment possible for your grandchildren. Good faith to the new man in your daughter’s life.From your description of Maddie’s pattern, there may be more patterns on the horizon.
Dear Abby: I am a 58 year old male. I have his 33 year old daughter and his 14 year old granddaughter. The relationship with the granddaughter does not exist. The only thing I can relate to her for is her benefactor role. She promises to spend her time, visits, calls, writes letters, but she never complies. On the other hand, she has no problem making money through cash apps and other platforms.
Every year, a few months before Christmas, I start getting calls and emails from her. We will be open as usual after the holidays. I will ignore her inquiries from now on. She doesn’t go well with her conversations with my daughter. What are you pointing at? — More than Michigan money
Dear: Conversation with my daughter didn’t go well, talk it over with my granddaughter again. Your 14-year-old may be a little self-centered, but you should let her know how you become if she is ignored for an extended period of time. feltExplain that you are no longer giving money to people you are not interacting with. Then see if she follows.
