<<Oh, the CALAMITY! Children who aren't permitted to drive! That's certainly a good reason for divorce.

You missed the control freak part of the sentence and that the children are in COLLEGE. My aunt was the same. She took her daughter to college everyday (no public transportation available and it would not have been permitted). It did seriously mess up the daughter life. She married at the first opportunity and ended up in an iffy marriage.>>

Why the POOR BABY! Imagine how abusive that aunt was! OH, the CALAMITY! Traumatized for life, no doubt?

Personally, I didn't learn to drive until I'd completed graduate school and needed to drive for the job I got. (generous car allowance and gas and oil included).

Cars are a money pit and a luxury best avoided by those in school, is my opinion.
