My daughter is 21, very responsible, putting herself through college and is working. She wants to be a lawyer. In order to help pay for law school she has decided to work a year between graduating from college this spring and going to law school.
Her boyfriend of a year and a half is 25, good job and buying a condomminium. My daughter asked what I thought about her living with him next year instead of living at home. He wouldn't charge her rent so the savings are the same as living at home. I know they already spend nights and weekends together and she says she isn't planning to get married until after law school, the bar exam and finding a job.
She knows we are not morally opposed, it's just I think it's a bad plan. It will be very hard to go off to school after "playing house". And, 21 is very young.
So, what do you think? What would you say to her if she were yours?
