@huynh "(I believe she was a part-time photographer) while Andi did not work. Whatever happened to that?" Elaine revealed that Etta had quit her job and just disappeared for months, which is why she called the cops. Reading between the lines, it seems that Etta and Andi ran off to Canada because that's where Andi's home is after having problems with Elaine. If I were Elaine, I would be upset at Andi too...30 years old and still acting like a kid? While also encouraging Etta to leave her mother, when knowing that Etta needs counseling to get her life together. If they really wanted to, Etta and Andi can get jobs as cashiers or waitresses to support themselves. But Elaine seemed to hint that Etta didn't want to work for little pay (maybe that was the reason she quit her job in Hong Kong). Although Elaine is upset at Etta, it's a matter of time before she takes her back. I don't think she will disown Etta and allow her to be homeless for too long.
I hate to undervalue their call for help. If they are homeless and are needing a place to stay and time to pick themselves up, then hopefully they are able to reach out to family or friends who can lend a helping hand. That being said, I feel that their relationship is extremely TOXIC. From previous interviews and news reports, it seems that the couple initially stayed with Elaine (unofficially, since I think Andi just visited/stayed over often). Elaine once made a sarcastic comment about how the couple would just sit at home and tell each other "I love you" all day long. Perhaps unhappy with Elaine urging them to get their acts together and get a job, they ended up moving out. Even then, there were reports that Elaine was still financially supporting Etta's living expenses (reportedly $900 HKD per week). Elaine then made a comment about not having to worry about grandchildren, because she wouldn't be able to support Etta's whole family. A while later though, it seemed that Elaine stopped giving money to Etta, and Etta was forced to find a job (I believe she was a part-time photographer) while Andi did not work. Whatever happened to that? What I sometimes find is that when couples are extremely attached and one works while the other stays at home, the stay-at-home one would complain about the working one not spending enough time with them. Yes, it's a presumptuous statement, but just a thought. All in all, it just feels like Etta and Andi are attached by the hip, are really not motivated to find jobs and support themselves, and just want to be financially supported. This is a very presumptuous thought, and perhaps their families have given them grief about their orientation/lifestyle choices/etc... but all things aside, it just feels as though they don't want to exert any effort to conform to societal standards of employment --> earnings --> lifestyle.
