Thursday mornings on the Karen and Ralphie morning show, Karen gives some personal advice. It’s ask Karen! From problems big and small, Karen gives her take on life, love, work and everything in between! If you’re interested in asking Karen a question, click here.
I’m 56 I’ve been divorced for 6 years. I have a 15 year old daughter. I have been dating a wonderful man for the past 2 years…he recently proposed and I have never been happier and neither has he.
Unfortunately my daughter does not like him…and really for no other reason except for the fact that she wants me all to herself. I will not feel right about getting married again until I know she’s o.k. with the new life she is about to have with him as my husband.
Any advice for me…I am not going to give up a great man because of my daughter’s immaturity.

Congratulations on finding a wonderful guy. I am sure he is just as fortunate. I would sit your daughter down and tell her this man is not going anywhere and that she is and always will be a priority in your life but that y
You deserve to be happy.
I would also consider counseling for her alone…for you and your daughter and at times all 3 of you together.
Be happy life is short. I am sure in time and with maturity your daughter will see all the wonderful
qualities in this man that you have seen.
