A friend of mine's boyfriend told her he wants a 2 week break. Needless to say she was devastated. I've been consoling her in this time period. They were all supposed to go away this weekend. Anyway, to make a long story short, it came out that he was too afraid to tell her that her oldest daughter is the problem. She manipulates my friend (told her that), but I can understand, she is 16 and at a very difficult age. He cannot stand the way she treats my friend and he feels he cannot be involved. I thought it was not good ethics on his side. He should have told her the truth and not just said he wants a break. I advised her to speak to her daughter and tell her the truth. My friend reckons this is the one for her. I told her somewhere along the line resentment towards her daughter is going to come up. She had the talk and her daughter was understanding. She is yet to confront him. He doesn't know she knows, but a friend of his who he confided in told my friend. Have any of you been in this situation and how did you handle it?
