Dear Counsellor: I'm done with my daughter


Jamaica Gleaner / A: It is not so much who is right but just different approaches. You are angry and disappointed in her behaviour. She has disrespected you and her father. In addition, your son-in-law has no class. However, your husband is saying that those who know better should do better. They have gone low but you can go high. So, take the high road and give them another chance.

SECRET MARRIAGE Perhaps they did a secret marriage because she felt you might not approve of her choice. It could also be for economic reasons that they chose to have a small personal wedding. It could be that a job opportunity came up overseas which she could benefit from by being married. But do not speculate. Instead, congratulate her and her husband as if nothing happened. In fact, give them your blessings along with a wedding gift. In addition, pledge to support them in their marriage. This might just make her explain her unconventional approach and make her open up to you about her future and her husband.

Do not take it personal or blame yourself or your husband. Instead, make the best of a bad situation by going the extra mile.
