Age of consent is 18.

Parent is. . . reluctantly supportive.

Parent knows the adult and thinks the adult is generally, overall a good person. If the relationship was happening 5 years from now, parent would be all for it.

The age difference at this point is worrying because of all the pitfalls coming up that neither one of them see.

Right now, they think they are in love.

Parent is reluctant to interfere because of possible consequences. Teen may lose interest in school and college if forced to break it off, and likely will also increase lying/sneaking to see adult.

Parent is spending time with both of them when they are together to limit opportunities for sexual activity.
