Without knowing the age of the female involved it would be difficult to make an informed opinion. If the female is a minor, it would be in the best interest of all parties to have an open and honest discussion about the relationship. Please be advised that ALL states have laws which can pertain to any relationship between unrelated minors and adults. I'm speaking merely as a parent. If my daughter were dating a man more than 20 years older than herself, I would be very concerned. If she were a minor I would pursue all legal options available to me to ensure that this man had no contact at all with her. If she were a young adult, although I couldn't prevent her from dating this man, that would not stop me from voicing my concerns--and I'd likely voice them at every available opportunity. However, if she was a mature adult (as in not just barely an adult) then I might view it differently. Merely my personal opinion, as a parent :)

Do you think Parents have a right to tell their daughter their not allowed to date someone anymore?

Honestly, I do. Parents do it for their daughter's safety. If they don't find the boy a good influence, they can decide that she shouldn't date him. It may not be fair in the daughter's point of view. But, parents, as long as the girl is under 18, have every right to do so. Daughters may and will find this very unfair, but it's not like they can do anything about it. And if the parents say do it, the daughter probably should. It's not that the girl doesn't deserve him. Most of the time, it's that the boy is dangerous or not worth her. So, I think the girl should stop dating the boy if their parents told her not to. She should find someone her parents will approve of. Just a bit of advice from me to you. Parents have every right. I'm not a parent. I'm a daughter who is under 18. And no, this has not happened to me. But, I do believe parents have every right to tell their daughter who they can and cannot date.
