My daughter is married to a sociopath or psycopath.
My daughter has been in a relationship with a sociopath for five years.
She married him a year and a half ago. He has worked only 1 1/2 years out of that five years. Right now he's working but is not paying his share of the rent and utilities. She pays all the bills, and he refuses to move out.
Yet he still demands respect from us. I don't respect him, and I show him I don't. She is filing for divorce this week. It'll take about 6 months to finalize. She can't have him evicted because his name is on the lease until December. He plans to stay as long as he can.
I've been telling her he's a sociopath and a parasite all this time. Every time she wants to break up with him, she takes him back.
Does he have mind control over her? She texts him many times a day even though she's divorcing him. What can I do to help her? What can she do to release herself from his manipulation?
