my 17 yr old daughter moved in with her 35 yr old boyfriend into the flat he already rented. now she lives there he told her he thinks i should provide food and pay bills for them as she is under 18. i have contact with her, when she comes to see me she often stays over and we spoil her rotten. i call her and text her often, but i dont feel i can go to the flat to see her as i have such a hard time seeing past his age, he literally is double her age at 35 and she is 17. i hate the fact that he is so old and has 3 small children to 2 other women and she is just starting out on life at 17. he doesnt have a job, hes on the dole. now her college course has finished til it starts again in september, he told her to hand out her CV so she can get a summer job to support them. i just wish she would come home and have told her this. i think she is far to young to be out on her own, its a difficult road she has chosen to walk. i understand she loves him and wants a relationship with him, which is why i try so hard to tread water and be involved in her life and i dont bad mouth him or talk badly about him, although i did express my concern to her about his age.
