Our daughter is dating this really wonderful guy. Unfortunately, the guy's dad is a jerk and treats his wife (his third) like crap. We are very worried that our daughter will wind up being treated this way. Is there a good way to handle this without seeming overbearing?

You have good reason to be concerned. His father's treatment of his mother is his role model and not a good one. Talk to your daughter about your concerns. It may already be on her mind. She may have insight into how he feels about how his father treats his mother. Unfortunately, these kinds of things are transgenerational.
