I don't know what would happen, but I would NOT be the one!! Check this out - an 18-yr old 'girl' moves out of her mom's house and into a friend's basement, but she's suing her parents for child support so she can go to college!!

I have no words for this. You can't have your cake and eat it too. If you think you're grown enough to move out and live by your own rules, then go ahead, but think you can force me to support you. Shoot. I'd have to put all my money in some offshort account or something!

Sad to say that I've not read it yet and already have sterotyped her as straight European (read: white).

Stuff like this is making the transition from utterly ludicrous to "I wonder if it'll work?". Let's hope we don't get to "anything is possible". Parenting, society, and the way young people think, has changed over the years - and its not a positive change. I can really go into one on this topic, but I'm going to leave it alone. It's pathetic and that child should be labelled "petty", "lazy", "loser". Let's throw all of the nonsense and the finger pointing to the side. Let's think about the worst case, both parent and child were equally abusive, abrasive, etc. to each other. The child has become an adult. The new adult decides to leave home. Now the new "adult" wants to be dependant upon the another adult. I don't like you, but I like your money. I think its a rather juvenile (hypocritical) thing to do. Okay, i lied about leaving it alone...
