A 41-year-old woman faced a dilemma when her boyfriend proposed that his 20-year-old daughter move in with them. Considering the daughter’s ‘bad’ habits, the woman hesitated. Here’s what she had to say:
They Had Been Together for a While
Having been in a relationship for five years, the woman and her 43-year-old boyfriend had children from previous partnerships.
While her oldest child was only nine, his eldest, a 20-year-old daughter, lived with her mother and was seeking a change.
His Daughter Acted Irresponsibly
Despite an agreement to work and attend school while living with her mom, the daughter often missed school and partied late. The woman stated, “She doesn’t want to abide by rules or respect her mother.”
Her Mom Was Fed Up
Struggling financially and raising younger children, the mother was growing increasingly frustrated with her daughter’s behavior.
He Suggested His Daughter Moved In
Surprisingly, her boyfriend proposed that his daughter move across the country to join them. However, given his work, he was absent from home for most of the year.
She Didn’t Know His Kids
Due to the distance, the woman had minimal interaction with his children, leading to a lack of close relationship.
She Said No to the Idea
She firmly rejected the proposal. “I was concerned about the influence of drinking and late-night parties in my home, especially around my children,” she remarked.
She’s Nervous About Dealing With the Situation
Although she recognized such behavior might be typical for a 20-year-old, she wasn’t prepared to welcome it into her home. Anxiety and a dislike for confrontations made enforcing boundaries challenging for her.
Was She Wrong to Refuse?
Concerned about the potential negative influence on her own children, she communicated her apprehensions to her boyfriend, leading to a strained silence between them.
Online People Responded
One person said, “Your boyfriend barely lives there, you would be the onsite “parent” to a 20-year-old that has already completely disrespected her own mother’s house rules.”
Another person said, “He won’t be there to control the situation, he is annoying. This is a terrible idea.”
