Add into it the OBSCENE Child Support laws and it's a disaster.
My guess is you'll have other things to worry about.
Great—an official state encouragement for nobody to get married under age 30. That’ll do a lot of social good.
An aged 29 ‘young adult’?
Young adults used to be what - 20, 21?
The left continues the infantilization of America.
BTW I'm a woman who was a divorced single parent in the eighties with NO child support now re-married to a man who is basically impoverished from child support to a woman who is remarried herself to a well-heeled 2nd husband.
His oldest "child" just graduated from HS with a 1.7 GPA and no plans on getting a full time job or going to any college (even community) whatsoever. "Child Support" continues mandatorily till they all turn 21. Of course his ex will wait until they are almost 21 before sending them to community college to extend "child" support out till age 24. The military wouldn't want these "kids" believe me (I know because my son is in the Air Force and is getting a degree in science and math)
We're splitting wood for heat because we can't afford the propane---they're going to the Ren Fest with two Florida vacays a year, flight tickets for all five plus kid's girlfriends and boyfriends.
I love my grown son's girlfriend (she's from NY) but having children in this state as a father is risky business indeed.
I had a cousin who made his kids leave home at 18 ( after graduating H.S.).
They were on their own. They worked, went to state or community colleges, started businesses,married young,and did just fine.
I left the house at 17 & ever after only came to visit.
Down on my luck in the 1970’s & lived in a rooming house & later a garage apartment. Never considered living with Mom & Dad.
Then came the day “when a man shall leave his father & mother, and shall cleave unto his wife”. Decades of blessed life together since.
FWIW my Dad was in the infantry in WWII. Early twenties when the war ended. In old photos he & his fellow soldiers all look well into their thirties. Some were 18.
I flew Hueys in RVN 1971-72. Some days we flew single ship to support the LRPs w/ammo or hot chow. Any grunt who got on to go back with us for whatever reason looked like skin & bones. At least they were glad to see us in our whump-whump.
Same here, and I'm a woman. Luckily for my parents, their example of hard work and living within your means was not lost on me.
I was a teen back in the 70s and joined the Air Force at the age of 17. At that age, still a teenager, I was on Missile Combat Crew and was responsible for launching a Titan II ICBM with a nine megaton nuclear warhead. Most of the officers on the crews were in their 20s and even today it remains the same.
The Government, via the worthless Government run schools, has deliberately made high school graduates less educated to better control all of us. Most of today's graduates could not perform the duties we did back in the Cold War but luckily enough there are pockets of young adults who still have the smarts to do the job.
Our Founding Fathers stated that a free country such as ours could not be maintained without an educated citizenry.
