  • Family issues

    So my step dad who I consider my real dad treats me like crap compared to the love he shows my other two half sisters and I'm tired of it he also doesn't like my boyfriend note I'm 16 and he's 18 note we don't do anything illegal however we have been together ever since I was 15 and he was 17 we have been together. My dad doesn't even let him over really my boyfriend does everything buys me dinner bought the family dinner cleans does the dishes cuts our grass all of that on the few chances he can come over. I'm scared my dad won't let me see him when he turns 19 again my mom doesn't even care about the age because note they are 10 years apart (mom and stepdad). Tonight he said f*** you to me I'll send you back to the country you came from and sell your car (he bought me a mustang for my sweet 16) all because I said I didn't like his burgers and I like other places such as five guys better. Then my sister goes this is why he doesn't like you because of your attitude and he goes yup and I said well I don't like him either so and then he said what I recently told you he said. I am just fed up and done and ready to just pack up my stuff and move in with my boyfriend. Any advice is accepted, thank you. Also note I've been with my stepdad since I was 3 and my real dad lives in a different country and I don't accositate with him. Does my stepdad even have a say in anything I do anyways?

    Re: Family Issues

    Hi there,

    Thank you for contacting us here at the National Runaway Safeline. It sounds like things are really difficult right now at home between you and your stepdad. We are really glad you reached out, we’re here to help as much as we can.

    It sounds like your relationship has really been struggling between you and your stepdad, because of your boyfriend and what your family says is your attitude. This has got to be really hard on your relationship with your boyfriend. It sounds like he really provides a lot of support to you and you care about him a lot. Unfortunately we cannot say what would happen if you moved in with your boyfriend without consent because we are not legal experts. Generally speaking, though, if you leave without permission from legal guardians, they would have the right to make a runaway report if you are under the age of 18 or a minor. If they make a report, and the police find you typically they would just bring you back home. However, anyone that you stay with could potentially be charged for harboring. It sounds like your relationship with your mom is a lot different than that of your stepdad’s, and if your stepdad is not your legal guardian then things may be different. One option you have is to contact your local law enforcement and just ask hypothetically what may happen. You do not have to give identifying information to do this.

    Please do call or chat with us to talk more. We’re here to support you.

    Best of luck,
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
