First, Kogorou is a single. It is none of Ran's business what Kogorou wants to do with his life and with who he wants to sleep.
Second, Ran is his daughter, and so she should behave like one. She of course might tell Kogorou that she doesn't like this woman or that woman, but she's old enough to understand that since the mariage with Eri is done now, Kogorou might want to look for a new significant other. Kogorou is still quite young, so it is not surprising that he wants another woman. In fact, he should have found one a long time ago.
Third. I understand that Ran wants Kogorou and Eri to become a couple again, but sorry Winnetou the reality is different. They hardly can speak with each other now, Eri also tries her best to find every single mistake of Kogorou to attack him (instead of closing an eye for small mistakes just to try to be together again, especially that she knows that he makes mistakes unintentionally), so it really will be better if each of them will find someone else to marry and create family. The word will not end if Kogorou will marry someone, and Eri also will marry someone. This again shows how immature despite her age she is.
I don't think so. If I was in her place, I would have either done everything in my power to create problems to Kogoro in dating women, or (more probably) would have simply renounced to him as a father and severed all ties with him. I don't care how/if immature it would look, but it would be "it's either me or your women, make a choice!".
I would rather hang myself than live in a divorced family, and I swear on everything I've got I am not joking.
Forcibly putting together Eri and Kogoro would make less sense in real life, but I hope Gosho will work it out (without having them marry other people), he is the author after all. In the cartoon, I still hope for the better. Screw realism, there is already too much sadness in real life, I hope for a happily-ever-after at least in fiction.
And, again, let's imagine I am in Ran's situation: if 2 people decide to have me, I am born, and then they suddenly decide they aren’t happy together anymore, divorce, get together with others and I have to watch this like a passive discarded piece of trash? Sorry, won’t happen. Nobody forced them to have me, they could well have used protection during intimate relationship. Then I wouldn’t have existed, and everything would be fine for them. But if they made a mistake of making a child while still keeping for themselves the possibility to tear the family apart, that’s just more “rights” and “freedom” than they deserve. If I exist and am destined to an unhappy life (like living with my parents divorced), I will at least arrange things in such a way they won’t think life is all sugar and honey and will regret having me.
Thankfully, I am not in this situation in real life, but if I were in Ran’s situation, I would be far less tolerant that her. With egoists, I act extremely egoistic.
