No, people are still harping on this because you're still defending it, and trying to say that people should expect and even accomodate that kind of behaviour as some normal part of a relationship. What's normal? Ixtellor argued that it could be some mutual understanding, not that everyone should g...

17 year old should be allowed to run away from home. Not because you may think that a 17 year old is capable of living on her own. Do you have any idea how much grief a parent goes through when a child runs away? Even at 17? I hope you don't, and I feel for any parent that ever had a child run away...
