My niece just turned 21. She is going to a local community college and living at home untill she transfers to a university this fall. Her parents have always been very protective of her and still set curfews for her because they don't want her out all night fooling around with guys. She has a job at the community college she attends, but couldn't financally support herself.
Well, now that I have given you some background here is my question. My niece started dating a man who is ten years older then her who works at the college as well. My nieces parents do not aprove of this guy since they believe he has caused my niece to change for the worst. For instance she has become direspecful and threatened to walk out and live with her boyfriend. Granted, she is an adult and her parents are very religious conservative, but they do only want whats best for her. Well, she got in an argument about not having enough freedom and her parents no liking her boyfriend and walked out a couple of days ago. She is now living with her boyfriend and his family. Also, my niece has only been dating her boyfriend for two months but is sure he is 'the one'. According to my other niece (her sister) she already has baby names picke out! I know she will eventually turn to me for advice. I am not sure what to tell her without her turning me off since it probly won't be what she wants to hear. Any advice?
