A friend's son was dating a young lady who was 15 and he was 19. Her mother had no problem with it. His mother was concerned, but figured that if her mother was okay, then it was all good. Nope. Young Miss has an older brother who was definitely not okay with it. He called in Child Protective Services and our friend's son went to jail for 18 mths.


That's the biggest concern now. Parent won't report, but someone else might.

Parent isn't happy, but doesn't want to create a Romeo & Juliet scenario where the couple feels they need to do something stupid.

Older person is supportive of school and college plans. Parent is pushing for teen to go to a not-so-local college.

If it's meant to be, they'll make it through that, and if it isn't, it'll help the transition.
