Lots of good, caring, on target advise with the previous posts. What I can say is use the challenges you have and reframe those as strengths. There are people who are dealt with very poor parents, and you have to remember, it is never your fault. You just got in the wrong line when they were handing out parents Consider how strong you are to handle this well and use this as an opportunity to have a great life, despite what you've been handed. Think of it as gift and with gratitude that you are going to be a strong person and make different decisions than your own parent. Let go the idea of "rescuing" the 18 year old. She'll never believe you anyways, because she is blind and wants to live in a fantasy world and has her own reasons for picking him. If she would pick some guy that much older than her, and has just had a baby. . . Ugh! She'll have to make her own mistakes, and yes the poor child will be impacted, but that is not your fault. It's your father's and this girl, whom neither you have control over! Turn your challenges into opportunities to do things in your life BETTER! I wish you the best.
