Hi, my name is Matt. Yes I am a man. I am looking for any advice the community can offer me. My lovely 12 year old daughter is dating a boy, his name is Louis. I am not fond of my daughter dating so young, it is more of a friendship than anything. Now to the dilemma I am facing. My wife has started to obsess or Louis, she allows him to stay at our house until 0800 on school nights. My wife also face times with him until late hours 1030 also on school nights. I have expressed my concern over her talking with him so late at night. My daughter knows and dosnt care. When asked about it she explains he is just a sweet boy and she likes him for our daughter. She constantly talks about him and gets defensive when I point it out. My wife has started to allow things she never would have done before, my daughter dying her hair and getting cartilage piercing. I have suggested we go see a marriage counselor, because maybe this stems from some problems with me. I am confused and looking for some advise. Should I just remain patient and hope for the best, or should I take a larger role in this matter. Thank you for your time!
