A father is seeking advice on whether it was wrong to confront his wife about her advice to their daughter on relationships. The dad is worried that his wife is encouraging their daughter to expect her boyfriend to pay for everything in their relationship. He has noticed his teenage daughter becoming more entitled to her boyfriend's money and is concerned about the message his wife's advice is sending. They have argued about the issue, with his wife insisting it is cute and a rite of passage for girls to be spoiled by their boyfriends. What do you think? Was the dad right to confront his wife, or is it harmless advice?

A father shares his concerns on how his wife's sudden change in advice for their daughter's relationship is making her entitled. The daughter has been dating a shy and respectful young man for a few months now. While the father has been trying to teach his daughter about equality and partnership, the mother has been encouraging her to let the boyfriend pay for everything, leading to the daughter becoming more and more entitled with his money. The father has expressed his concerns to the mother, but she insists it's a rite of passage for girls to be spoiled by their boyfriends. This has caused a rift in their marriage, with the father being called an a**hole. Do you think the mother's advice is harmless or spoiling their daughter? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
