My daughter is 26 years old and lives with my wife and I and our home. She is a social worker so doesn't make a large income and the average apartment here on Long Island for a one bedroom is $1800 a month. Three days ago, my wife and daughter had an argument and they aren't talking. Now my daughter wants to move out which is a good idea but in the meantime both of them are very upset. Should I speak with my daughter and tell her to get back with her mom and make up. By the way my wife has done everything for this child including her laundry cooking meals and cleaning. For these reasons maybe it's a good idea for her to move even if it's economically unfeasible. Should I stay out of this whole situation.
I would not stop your daughter from moving out, and even helping her move out if she needs anything. Could she start in a bachelor or shared apartment to lower the costs a little bit? This is yours and your wife's home and she is an adult. Your wife doesn't need the stress of arguing with an adult child after all she has done, it’s time for your daughter to stand on her own two feet and leave the nest. It wouldn’t hurt to talk to your daughter because moving takes time and she needs to respect her mother during this time with at least common courtesy. It would also help to talk to your wife and let her know you think it’s time to cut the apron strings, but you will always help where you can.
