I don't condone the girl's life choices but I wouldn't want to hang with LW either.
You and SUb b oth hit on that, I think: He's not taking any responsibility for how his daughter has turned out.

1- Sounds like you want out of this marriage and looking for justification. So you married a fraud. At least she didn't turn out to be a man.
2- Stop sending her money. Try to actually get together and do stuff with her.
3- Craaaazy loooove! Anyway, what's the big deal? I frequently tell people I met my gf in the psych ward. Usually good for a laugh.

1. You were already on the rocks. Would this not be a suitable straw? GTFO.

2. She is 18. If you push, she is going to push back. She is going to have to find her own way.

3. We met at Starbucks and we ordered the same thing and yeah we know it's corny but watcha gonna do?

No one wants to hear any follow-up to that.

It was open to anyone. It was a few years ago. I don't even know if it's still going on.

Guys -- I know what you're sayin'. I like football -- but pull-eeze! There's more to life.

You watching the Oscars? There's so many movies I've yet to see. How about you?

I spent years listening to how this guy had a total fup of a teenaged son, his ex-wife kept enabling the son to be a total fup, etc, etc, etc. The son and the guy did not get along, obviously.

The son is currently a sophomore at an Ivy League college in engineering and doing well, and somehow he's still an fup and his ex-wife ruined him. I do not grok this. I've decided its likely the son does have his head on relatively straight.

Let's see -- I THINK it's called The Round Table and it was in Itasca. Good luck. Like I said, I don't know if it's even still around.
