Would you allow your child to date someone 10 years older than her/him?


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?

    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?

    Perhaps knowing the guy a little more will make a huge difference.

    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.

    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.
