Demanding your daughter does osborne uninnovated place my top ten signs that you were allowed to do. They dont get pregnant. My sister should make her.
They met through a mutual friend, and have been dating about 3 to 4 months.
He refuses to come to my parents house where my sister lives. His excuse is that every time he meets a girl's parents, he ends up breaking up with the girl because parents don't like him.
My sister is dating a loser. What can I do to help her?
First red flag So, she drives to his home nearly every day to spend time with him. She is an asthmatic, and his stepmother is a chain smoker.
He doesn't seem to mind that she wheezes and coughs the whole time she is there because she can't breathe. Second red flag Not only that, but she will often spend her entire visit talking to his stepmom or watching his brothers while he watches TV in another room. Third red flag She invited him to Thanksgiving, with the agreement that she would eat Thanksgiving dinner with his family too.
My parents were excited; they were finally going to get to meet her guy. Unfortunately, our family is eating dinner at the same time his family is eating dinner. So, as a solution, my sister suggested to her guy that they eat with their own families, then hang out later in the evening.

His response was to tell her that the only reason he was going to his grandmother's for Thanksgiving was so that she could meet his extended family, and that he wouldn't even be able to get to his grandmother's house if she didn't drive him, so he might as well sit at home alone and eat pizza rolls for Thanksgiving. I've never asked you to do anything for me, just this once, could you please do this for me? She will not dump him.
Perhaps you have better coping mechanisms and this is why you are able to be more independent whereas your sister is a different person who may be more needy emotionally. You and your parents have no right to tell her who to date.
She is not a child and although she is still supported financially by her family she is an adult and adults are able to make their own decisions. You would be doing more damage by telling her she is not 'allowed' to date this guy because that would be treating her like a child who is unable to make her own decisions so the belief that she can't take care of her self will get rooted into her mind even deeper.
You can only state your opinion but you cannot make demands. You have done that and she has chosen to remain with him. There is nothing more you can or should do in this case. She needs to learn from her own mistakes and you need to back off and focus on your own life instead.

As her brother, I really should back off. And I think I am going to. It just sucks, because she is seeing someone who is not right for her. She is 25 years old, and is being devious and tells lies about where she is at, and who she is meeting. She'll still get friends to 'cover' for her, while she is at her boyfriends place.
If she acts like a kid, then she should be treated like a kid.

That's what I'm thinking. Having said that, I have decided to back out, and let my parents deal with it. The problem is, that my parents take a lot of my advice. So I know I have influence is some of the decision they make.
My main point, is that both my Parents disapprove of this guy too. And my sister is living under their roof. So shouldn't she still be treated like a kid?
