It’s absolutely normal for children to find their own way in the world once they become an adult. On here, you come across as overbearing and controlling. I can’t imagine what it’s like for your daughter IRL. That’s why she’s pulling away.
I have a feeling your wife is similar. Even though she apologized, the checking for meat thing majorly crossed a line. Yikes.
Look, I have a great relationship with my parents but we don’t see eye to eye on A LOT. We’re able to have this relationship because they’ve always let me be my own person, even if they don’t like all of my decisions. They trust me and trust that they raised me to be a decent, independent human. Truly, that’s all your daughter probably wants.
Counseling for you and your wife would help you in this transition and maybe help you build a better relationship with your daughter.
