This user has the following games installed:

Sims 2, University, Nightlife, Open for Business, Pets, Seasons, Bon Voyage, Free Time, Apartment Life
Default Meadow Thayer comes home from work with Adult Sim?
Recently installed the Sims 2 via Origin (UC) and LazyDuchess launcher. I do have the recommended antiregen mods installed. Anyway, I have a relatively new Sim that is in the military career. Twice now he has brought home Meadow Thayer from work with him! What is wrong I wonder?

I've had similar situations before where my sims keep bringing the same sim from work exclusively over and over again, including teens and young adults (from college, which is even weirder because they don't have jobs). There is a strange occurrence where a chance card results in your sim bringing over a co-worker, but to my understanding (with this specific chance card), the game just picks one random sim to be that co-worker, even if they're not even in that career, and your sim will keep bringing them home from work every single time.

I find it very annoying and the only solution I have for this is using the mod Work & Bring Home Friend Dialog. This mod asks you whether your sim can bring the co-worker over or not, so you can refuse for them to show up at your home.

Thanks for your reply! I don't mind if he brings her home but I thought because she was a teen my game was "off" as I've never had it happen before

Its because its a hobby chance card and the game is choosing a sim who has enough hobby points in that particular hobby. You need cyjon's hobby friend sanity mod http://cyjon.net/node/409

I also had this happen recently with an NPC being brought home from work every single day due to a hobby chance card. I put the batbox on the lot for something else and noticed it had an option to nuke forced visitors, which I'd never seen before. I clicked it and it said 1 object fixed or removed - I don't quite remember. But my sim comes home from work alone now, so I recommend trying that.
