Q. My son is a senior and was invited to the junior prom by a friend. Shortly after, she asked him for 140 bucks for the limo and expects him to pay for his ticket. He would be perfectly happy to drive her in his car, but when he suggested this she acted as though he had rocks in his head. What are his financial responsibilities aside from showing up in a tux with a corsage?
A. His financial responsibilities are 0, other than what you listed, the tuxedo and the corsage. She asked him, and therefore the costs associated with the prom are hers. If they participate in a post-prom party, he may offer to share the expenses or even pick them up, but the prom costs are hers.
