Is it illegal to runaway in Pennsylvania?

Question by : Is it illegal to runaway in Pennsylvania?
In my book these 3 girls live in Pennsylvania and they are running away to new york city, they are taking a bus then a train and then a subway to get where they want. But is it illegal for them to runway, I am pretty sure it is, if so what are the consequences? And here are the circumstances, one girl is running from an abusive home, one because her father is back in town and he abused her mother and her and her sister, who commited suicide because if him, but they didnt find him guilty so he was released from jail, with a restraining order from them, which he wasnt following so this girl was afraid ad wanted to flee, the other is being abused by her mother who blamed her for her father being in prison. And they get kidnapped while they are there, but their one friend who remembers one of them mentioning wanting to run away and telling details runs away to find her but when he can’t he calls the police and helps track down her to the kidnapper. So is it illegal for them to runaway under the circumstances and is it illegal for this boy not to report knowing about how she wanted to runaway and what are the consequences? Btw they are all 14. So yeah thanks! And btw I really don’t care about the fact it’s “a stupid decision” they should “call the police and get help” this is a book! If I didnt make them runaway and get kidnapped, how would I have a book?! So please I don’t want your advice just your answers. Thank you very much to those who just answer my question!

poker addiction?

Question by white.daisy: poker addiction?
My boyfriend has this attraction to playing poker…as of right now, he’s been at the casino for 48 hours, where he’s complaining of a headache, and planning to call out of work tomorrow, but still won’t come home. While he usually does come home with more money than he took, he’s very secretive about his activity there. And the addictive behavior is starting to concern me…he has blown off everything we had planned this weekend while he sits down there. Is this normal or am I right in feeling its a little excessive?
He came home this morning, after being gone for three days. He had to call out of work today, because he was so out of it. He took his credit card this time and lost so much that he refuses to tell me. I am so upset and confused.

Answer by Dancer<3
No you are not over excessive. He has a problem, and he needs to fix it. It’s not right for him to blow you off. And to be there for that long is ridiculous! Sure one night is fine but that is a little over the top. Sit him down and tell him how you feel, maybe he will change. If he doesn’t take him to a counceler. Good luck.
