Our expert says:
no I dont think you are a bad father from whatyou describe, but where are the moral scruples of your so-called best friend?
At 16 there is still a lot of emotional maturing to do, and the difference of life stage between 16 and 43 is enormous and is not healthy for her.
At 16 she is still a minor in your care and you do have the right to stop this man from seeing your daughter.
She may not thank you for it now, but a relationship of this nature could interfere with her ability to develop more healthy relationships in the future. Trust your instinct here, and consider finding a new best friend!!
