Consequences to Life Decisions
Consequences to Life Decisions
08/03/2012

Dear Dr. Laura,

My husband and I have 3 grown sons. We made it perfectly clear we didn't approve of “'living together,” or as you call it, “shacking up.”

At this point, only one son has a serious girlfriend to whom he will be proposing next May. His girlfriend was looking to move out and away from her father's controlling ways. She couldn't afford to live on her own, and our son did not invite her to live with him. She decided to stick it out with her father.

She was recently hired as a teacher with a local parochial school. She asked our son to tell me "Thank You". At first I was confused as to why.  He said "The school asked her to sign a contract agreeing not to live with a man before she is married and is glad it was in your contract too."  She now realizes how some life decisions can affect a person's future and is very grateful.

Dr. Laura, please continue with your mission!

Jo
