19 year old guy dating a 17 year old
Of course according to the law it's ok, but I would try to stop my daughter (or my son) at any cost from getting into that sort of relationship.You do realise that as their daughter you're unlikely to actually find out what's going on behind the scence, or even under your nose if you're used to it and think it's normal. My boyfriend is 27 and I'm 20, he'll be 28 while I'm still 20 which is the same as 18 and 26.I'm in an 10 year age gap relationship and have been for 7 years now.It has, honestly, been the best thing to happen in my life. But, I've found it's mostly not malicious (friends usually tease about their friends' choice of partners-- heck I teased a mate for seeing a guy called Randalf.). You are both adults and can do whatever and whomever you like.You do realise that as their daughter you're unlikely to actually find out what's going on behind the scence, or even under your nose if you're used to it and think it's normal. We have our own place too and even moved to another country (7000 miles away) together.My parents also married at similar ages and have been together (allegedly "happily") for more than 20 years. If she's mature then it shouldn't matter, but in most cases I don't think it would be true.It has never been an issue, and in fact, for me was an advantage in a lot of ways. I was born in December 1983 my husband was born in November 1976 we've been together since July 2001 got married April 2005 we're still together, and pretty happy right at the moment. Typically the reason older men don't date teenage women is because they don't relate to them as well as older women, not because there's anything wrong with finding a young woman attractive.
If it were something like 18 and mid-30's or something, then yeah, as that could potentially be double the persons age/have children the same age as the partner etc. We have our own place too and even moved to another country (7000 miles away) together.
It's not the most common situation but I can't see anything wrong with that.
When I first met my current bf three years ago I was 18 and he was almost 25 so we had a similar situation.
Exactly which puts her needing to be 19 for it to be acceptable. What you need to do is wait for her to be 21 then you'll be fine. Often shocked when I see girls out and assume they're still at school when in fact they're at university!
As an extreme example, I have a cousin who is 22 and she's dating a guy who is 46 years old.
