          A Family Divided: Why is Outspoken Dad Carl Boycotting His Daughter's Wedding?

          May 05, 2015

          Dr. Phil continues his discussion with Carl, who says he is boycotting his daughter, Lisa’s, upcoming wedding amid an inheritance squabble that has left the entire family up in arms. Lisa says if her father can find money to travel to the Ukraine for a “mail-order bride” — who may or may not exist — then he should be able to make it to her wedding. Why does Carl say he is opting out of his daughter’s big day? And, will he have a change of heart?

          Plus, Carl drops a bombshell, saying he doubts he is the father of Lisa and her twin sister, Jennifer. How does their mother, Kathy, respond? Lisa says all she wants is to have her father’s support, despite their differences. Is there any hope for repairing this damaged father-daughter relationship? And, can this family move forward in peace?
