My father is with a gold digger and it’s been something my sister and I have tried tackling for years. When we tell people about the situation, they (endearingly) want to help and jump in with suggestions. “Have you tried saying this to him?” Yes. “What about this?” Yup. “Have you confronted her?” Uh-huh. But the reality is that nobody can make a man leave a gold digger if he doesn’t want to and he’s probably aware of the situation. Gold diggers prey on lonely men a lot. Men and women handle matters like divorce and becoming widowed very differently. Often, men don’t really have a good social network to fall back on after losing a partner. They’re lonely, and they latch onto the next person who will pay them plenty of attention. You can guess who that might be. When that’s your own father with a gold digger, it can cause pain and frustration beyond words. Here’s what it’s like when your divorced or widowed father is with a gold digger.
You get on the case of proving it
First, you get on the case of proving she’s a gold digger. You try to gather as much evidence as possible to show your father the way she is wasting his money, and using him. You’re sure if you can just show him what’s happening, that your father will leave her.
