Is this what a mother should be telling her daughter? It seems to me that she should be advising her not to be having an affair with a married man.
I don't consider myself a prude or even old-fashioned, but some actions are just wrong. Being with a married man is one of them. If this mother was only concerned with whether her daughter was flying coach or first class, she needs to re-examine her values and moral fiber.
I saw so much of this when I was teaching...parents just missing the point. Please stop and think about what your children are doing and what you're teaching them. I can't imagine any mother wants their child to end up like these women. Of course, I've been wrong before.
