I'm a 24-year-old graduate. I have never worked in my life because I have never had the need to. My friends have been nagging me to get a job and they are slowly starting to irritate me. My three married boyfriends are supporting me financially and I'm happy.

I'm only 24 years old but I have seen and been to places. I'm up-to-date with the latest fashion trends and my boyfriends give me enough money to maintain myself. Why must I work when there are men who are willing to pay for my lifestyle? I have tried this working thing and it doesn’t work for me. How do I get my friends to understand that I'm happy with my choices.

Wilma Calvert from The Family Life Centre in Johannesburg says, “The kind of lifestyle you are choosing is not sustainable. What will happen when your boyfriends get tired of you, and what will happen to your boyfriend’s three families should they find out? What will happen to you should your boyfriends find out about one another? You won’t be 24 forever. Goals and self-respect are very important. Pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, are real concerns. Think deeply about who you are. Think about the dream you had growing up or when you registered for your degree, the person you have become, and the person you can still be. That dream is still waiting to be brought to

life by you.”
