i'm 21 years old and my boyfriend is 24. he is an undergraduate right now with about another year to go and has been in college since he graduated high school... talk about van wilder! his gpa is under a 2.0 and he is still 100% tied to his parents financially. they pay his bills, his tuition and everything in between. he has had jobs and internships, but is all around a very lazy guy. I love him! we have so much fun together... but I am so concerned about our future. I am also attending school right now and am on track for the future but am very traditional in my views and kind of expect the man to be the sole bread winner. we have talked about marriage because we are very compatible and communicate well, but I am very concerned about him financially. he is completely broke and goes out all the time and spends money that he does not have.
i realize you all are in no position to judge, but from the outside, is there hope? I am still financially tied to my parents too so I don't have much knowledge in this area... but it concerns me greatly.

Tell his mother and father that they need to stop helping him financially, then don't support him financially yourself either. When he has no other ways but to fight for survival, he will learn quickly, probably under a year.
It's f--ked up, but your intentions are good
