My 17 yr. old daughter is dating a 21 yr. old boy. And her father (my ex) is acting like a mad man. She will be 18 in 2 1/2 months and graduating high school. I know the boy and he is a really good kid and thinks the world of my daughter. We all work at the same place and they were friends long before they started dating. They both have good heads on their shoulders. They will go out and do things together but for the most part they hang out at my house with me and my 14 yr. old (he lives on his own.) They both have told me that they are not having sex....cause i ask.... because they aren't there yet in their relationship. I don't have a problem with them dating and in our state they aren't braking any laws. The age of consent is 17. and like is aid they are both good kids. My problem is with her father... He won't even give the boy a chance. He started making threats against him before he ever met him. When he did finally meet him he told him if he didn't stay away from her he would make his life a living hell. My daughter no longer will have anything to do with her father. When I tried to talk to him he went crazy and told me what a terrible mother I am and is making threats against all of us. He has always been a control freak and now that he can't control her I'm afraid he may do something crazy. He is putting our 14 yr.old in the middle, and she is about ready to tell him where to get off. I just want to protect the kids and I'll get my attorney involved if I have to.
