I have a friend who has a 16 year old daughter who is currently dating 26 year old guy. If you're the parent, would you allow this?

Thanks for sharing your experience on this. It does help when you know the person.
I just hope they see the difference between lust and love.
Thank you for for this insightful answer. Age is more important rather than just the age difference.
How did your parents react when they learned you're dating someone 11 years older?
For three years they pouted. Once they heard we were engaged, they worked on accepting him. Now, my parents and husband can be around each other better. And the baby has definitely help.
I'm glad it worked out well for you.
Perhaps knowing the guy a little more will make a huge difference.
A background check would be nice.
I just saw that you were asking about a 16 year old girl chances are no I would not allow this to go on. But only a parent knows their child well enough to say if she mature enough to date him or not.
I'm the young girls's godfather and I know her pretty well. She, caring and responsible. But you know how it is with hormones and decision makings at that age. Plus i have no clue who the guy is. Perhaps I'm worrying a lot. After all i'm not .
There's so much pressure and responsibility once people exclusively date.
At least your parents know what it feels like to be in such a relationship.
i understand your thoughts. But the mere fact that they hooked up, there must be something in common with them. I just hope that both are responsible enough for their actions.
Nothing in common? You base that on age alone? A centenarian has a lot in common with a 3 year old. You only have to look with loving eyes.
