    yes, it’s often the case. when girls lack positive male role models especially. They even have a term for it: “daddy issues”.

    If they find them soon enough, they’ll avoid having them return pregnant with a drug addiction and at least 1 std. just to note, the posters say 17 & 16, the article says 17 & 15

      I never had any doubt that they’d come home so i didn’t pray about it. 16-17 year olds running off with boys is very very common. And it sounds like these two didn’t even make it out of town.
