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 :)

if i were you I wouldn't hid that from my parents because they find in normal and they don't forbid me from dating, but you should imagine how your parents were going to react, if bad is it, you shouldn't tell it, or you should, that's your callthis answer is different for different kinds of parents

The etiquette for dating your daughter-in-law's father would be no different from that for dating the father of your son's girl friend. Whatever works for the tow of you should be fine.

stop dating him/her and apologize to the parents immediately

Learn about her family traditions and background and approach her father about dating his daughter, I think it will please him that someone respects him that way.

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.

for datting no but sex yes because she's not a legal adult and the parents can call it rape

It may be that they are uneasy about their daughters marriage with you, but approve of her experience with you.

A twelve year old should not be dating! They should go home with their parents. It is absolutely inappropriate for a 12 year old to be dating.

I am 15 and I'm dating a 13 year old and we've been dating for 7 months and the parents love me but at first they didn't because of my age. Then I got on the parents goodside. So just get on the parents goodside.

If you are referring to a man you are dating, yes. Leave him at light speed, especially if your daughter (or son) is under 18.

c my parents dont like me dating guys but i date them anyways

There are no laws regarding dating. All you need is permission from the minor's parents to date their daughter. There are laws regarding sex, which is a totally different thing than just dating.

he was dating your friends stepdad's niece daughter, mooron!

Yes if the parents allow it. Dating at this age can be walking home from school or something. It's not like dating when you are 16 and no sex is involved. There is no age of consent when it comes to just dating.

User Avatar

If you really like him and your parents are okay with you dating then yes go for it!

User Avatar

I don't think that there's any law against dating at any age, but your parents may not like it. I hope that this helped.
