You need to reread my comments. She is not beholden to you or what you want or what she previously agreed to.
She was honest with you, she didn’t want to talk to you about it because you’d overreact and here you are overreacting over the stupidest trivial things! I don’t care if you’re a vegan, or why you’re vegan. She can choose to eat what she wants to. She is still AN ADULT doing things her way as she is want to do and I am serious but the consequences. You don’t seem to hear her or understand what is wrong here. You say you aren’t “meaning to brow beat her,” but that is EXACTLY what you are doing again!
She is zooming in to family events now but if you keep being a controlling, possessive asshole, she won’t even be zooming in. If you want the best for your relationship you need to back off and see a therapist. Work on your communication skills and appropriate boundaries.
None of your examples make your point, they just show how controlling you are.
In short——If you want a relationship with your children, stop being a controlling asshole and see a therapist.
Are you like this with you son and wife? It doesn’t show love, it shows control.
