This woman is smart. She is gaining assets for her child, which if she has a prenup would be the smartest move ever just in case the marriage doesn't work. As far as commuting to college from Manhattan.....just 15 years ago HD TVs were huge boxy things rolled around on the floor, a majority of the internet was dial-up at 56k narrowband not wireless, a laptop typically weighed as much as a small dog, AOL cost $20 a month for an email account, the cell phones were still analog, one rented movies from a store of which still carried VHS tapes, social networking - what was that? So in the next sixteen years who knows where technology will be, this child may be taking all of her classes remotely from the posh flat that her mum bought her today. Again, smart woman.
