I have a 21 year old daughter. She has been on her own for a while. I am very discouraged with her. She has moved in with a quite older boyfriend and moved to his home town. When she graduated, she lived in Calgary for a while (before she met the BF) going to college, doing great, had a life with friends, going out doing things, worked on top of college with her friends......
then she meets with very older boyfriend, they move in together....and life stops, she quit her job (boss was being very harsh on her) moved to his home town, she she quit college. They have been together for about a year, she does not work what so ever, (he is 37), neither does she, they are both on Employment Insurance, which is about to run out next month, he will not find a job what so ever, they are poor and struggling. She has not slept right in 4 months, stressed out, life is hard for her, not sure what is going on with her, she was very motivated before she met him, very higly motivated, and now that she has been with him, it has all gone away.
They came to my wedding last month, and he was rude as hell. Would not socialize with us much, always tried to pull her away and go hide. We had friends who were in industries who could have got him a job, but he refused to talk with them, it was and is a night mare.....trying to encourage her to get going here, but he seems to keep slowing her down....help?!
