Parents vs. 25-Year-Old Daughter: Who's Right? 🤔

Luke and his wife are facing backlash from in-laws and friends for setting ground rules for their 25-year-old daughter, Betty, who wants to move back in. Betty, known for throwing tantrums and asking for 'fun money,' refuses to follow the stipulations, which include paying rent, doing chores, and no wild parties. The parents insist it's time for Betty to grow up and face adult responsibilities, while others call them selfish and unreasonable. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🍿
