Recently, my 20 year old son and his girlfriend's (age 18) relationship got my husband (age 63) fired from his long-time job as the girlfriend is the boss's daughter.
At first I was supportive of the relationship because I liked the girl alright, but as time marched on she became very rude, defiant and downright unbearable. Because she lectured me about how weird I was when I was angry catching them in bed together in my house, drove the car we bought for my son without a license, smoked pot freely in my house, and finally, one night when my son didn't come home or answer his phone, I texted her and asked her where he was. She responded that it was classified information, and I didn't have a need to know.
From that day forth I took the stance that in my world she didn't exist. My son was free to do what he wanted with her, but just not in my house or car. The last thing that happened was that my son took off on Christmas Eve (which devastated me and grandparents) to go live at her house. One week later my husband was fired from his job "because the relationships were just too complicated."
I'm having a huge problem coping with my anger for my son because at my husband's age he is struggling to find another position. I haven't talked to my son since, and I'm trying to leave the door open to have a relationship with him, but most of the time I'm too angry to care. Because of him we have to move out of our house (no longer can afford it), I have to find another job near where we'll live.
OMG!!! What to do!!!!
