My daughter moved out on Thursday. She moved in with her boyfriend of 2 years. They are living with his parents. My daughter and I had a fight because I told her she needed to go to college or start paying bills (small amount). She has known this is what I expect for awhile now. I have benn devastated and can't stop crying over this. She is my only child. I am angry because I was trying to teach her responsibility but her boyfriends mom will just let her live with her and not pay bills or do chores. I told her that she cannot move in and out of my home whenever she feels and I wish her happiness. However, sh has been acting very rude and disrespectful to me whenever we talk. I just don't understand. She was not like this before. I almost feel she thinks she needs to make me mad at her so I do not ask her to come back home. I keep asking myself what I did wrong. We have always been close. My family says it is because all she sees right now is being with her boyfriend and having freedom. My house feels so empty without her. It is just me, my fiancé, and my dogs. Please some words of advice, wisdom, etc, to help with this hurt. I had my girl at a very young age and am now only 35. I do not have anyone close to me to identify with these feelings, their children are all so very young yet.

I am lucky that way. She had very good grades in high school and has a good job at a bank. Her boyfriend is also employed full time, in a good trade. I think, sometimes, that I was too demanding on her. I want her to have everything I did not.
