Wayward daughter, distraught father
Dear Dr. Jim
I am going through a change of life over this horrible situation.
Our daughter has dropped out of school and keeps atrocious hours. She seldom comes home before four in the morning anymore. When I ground her, she sneaks out the window.
Now besides her wild night life and working at the Chili King in the afternoons, she has pulled the last straw. She is engaged and will be married next week. Don't you thing a two week engagement is too short.
The young man she duped is very gullible and is a hard working fellow. I feel sorry for him.
Do you think marriage might cure her of her wayward ways?

Dear D'd Father
You should be asking if I think that guy will keep her. You sure don't want her back!
That wasn't very nice of me to say, of course, all fathers want their daughters back if they aren't happy where they are. Mainly, fathers just want daughters to be happy.
I might add, this is the big problem here, daughter obviously isn't happy living a quiet family life at her house now. She has been looking for a change.
Sometimes change in a new beginning is all it takes to bring someone back to reality, and I might add, to their senses again.
I will wish all concerned the best. If this fellow and she hit it off this could be the marriage to end all! All of one bad life and the beginning of a new happy (married now) life again!
I hope this helps, just wait and see how it works out.
So, keep on keep'n on, and till then,
