My Boyfriend and His Adult DaughterTue, Dec 8th 2009
My boyfriend of two years left me because he felt I was too jealous of his daughter. She is 25 years old with 2 children. She rarely works and is on state assistance saying she cannot find a job. He pays around $900 dollars per month of her bills. Among the bills he pays for her are bankruptcy, utilities, cell phones, etc. We own property together and vehicles together. However, all of his life insurance and his home is left to his daughter with no provision for me to pay our debts if something were to happen to him. When the grandchildren come they hit me with pillows and order me to the sofa and it doesnt seem to bother him. Am I jealous or in a bad relationship?
