He needs help - May 17th 2010, 02:45 AM

My boyfriend of a year and half has a completely different family life as me. MY family may get on my nerves, but his family doesnt get the chance. His parents divorced after a nasty affair. His mother cheated on his father with his current step dad. after the divorce his father married the current step dads ex wife? confusing right?!?!?! well in basic terms the switched spouses. I (the girlfriend) LOVE his mother with all my heart and can deff tell why she left his dad.....let me explain his dad...well he never grew up. he is messy messy messy messy messsy messsy!!!! i CANNOT stand to go over to his duplex. His carpet smells like dog shit! its soooooo annoying! his dad has no respect for anything except his precious "antiques" (a.k.a. garage/flea market JUNK!!!) his dad pays for NOTHING,,occasionally he will give my bf $20 for "whatever" but his mom on the other hand give my bf an allowance every month.....his mother lives in a another city so we can not hang out over there which sucks bc its clean! i try to tell my bf my opinions but i dont want to hurt his feelings. he knows mainly how i feel but i know he wont say anything to his dad (he is quiet). i want to marry this boy but im scared that he will turn out the same as his dad and i dont want that!!! ANY ADVICE ON HOW TO TALK TO HIM AND WHAT HE CAN SAY TO HIS DAD?!?!?!

P.S. he is embarrassed for me to go to his house because of how dirty it is....

If your boyfriend is embarrassed to have you over at his dad's house, due to how messy it is, then I sincerely doubt your boyfriend will ever become like his dad in regards to that. =P As for talking to his dad... there's nothing you can do. Absolutely NOTHING. First of all, it's not your place (or even your boyfriend's place) to tell his dad how to live his life. Secondly, do you honestly think that a man like that would change, for ANYONE'S sake? You'll just create unnecessary strain in your boyfriend's life.
