* Yes, it is legal but only with parental consent. * No, this is not legal everywhere. In the US it will depend on state law.

Is it legal for an adult to be in a relationship with a 16-year-old if they have parental consent in the State of California?

No, age of consent is 18 in California. Parents can not give legal consent for their minor child to have sex. The minor must have reached age of consent in the state. If the child was below age of consent and the parents knew they had sex, they can be charged with aiding to statutory rape.
