say “Dad I just want you to be happy. Only you can decide what you think is best for your life. Congratulations and I wish you the best”. This may work out and it may not, but it’s his life. So just be happy that he’s happy in his choice. If it fails, he will be the one to deal with that.

My grandfather did this! and we tried to like her for years but she was just a mean woman. It drove a big wedge between us all and we rarely visit now (eventho we all live 10min apart). It’s sad— and I know people on these boards will say “they have a right to live their lives and remarry, you are adult children now so grow up!” BUT it’s family, who they marry matters especially when you bring your children around.

You already told him how you feel and he’s not listening 🙁 I hope this woman turns out to be a good one!

I think we have similar dads. My dad did something similar. He met a woman online and a couple months in (before meeting her in person) decided he would fly to Asia and marry/meet her. He told me about this deicison in an email that began with a review of the movie Battleship.

I told him I thought it was rushing it, but he ignored me. They seem okay, its been about a year and a half now. They are moving to be where her family lives in January, so I will see him even less than now.

You can tell him he is rushing it, but he won’t listen.
