What do you think about this? Is this even right?

I have a friend that is a teenager girl, like 17 years old, and she is dating a 30 years old guy, but her mother doesn't seem to think there is anything wrong there, first of all it is illegal, and second, at 17 years old you are not prepare to be in a relationship with such a difference of age, not that I have anything against relationships with some years apart. But I think that is not the proper age for that. If you are 27 years old and you are dating a guy that is 40, okay, everybody is an adult and know what they are doing. But at 17 she is almost a kid. How is possible that this mother doesn't see anything wrong with this? What do you think?

If my child was 17 years old she sure wouldn't be dating a 30 year old. To me she is way to young and she has her whole life a head of her before thinking about jumping in to a big relationship like that. I agree with you on this. He can also go to jail over that. If she was an adult that would be different but she isn't. The mother must not be thinking very wise. Because I am a mother of 3 kids and 2 of my kids are 20 and 21 but my other child is only 16 and she sure wouldn't be with someone that age. It has to be someone her age.

Exactly if she should be an adult is another story because people would have to respect her decisions, but being a minor her consent to do something like that is not even valid. So I think is illegal, but for some reason some older lady still like all those things of an older guy for their daughters, without realizing that at that age you don't have enough maturity to face a relationship with such an older guy.

Yep if she was an adult it would be different but she isn't. She is just a kid in my eyes. And her mother needs to think a little smarter then what she is doing. Unless she tends to set the guy up and put him in jail. Some people have done that and don't care. But that guy should have enough smarts not to be with a girl that age either.

I think he may go to jail. Her mother is not the smart. I don't know what this woman is thinking, but not her daughter interest in mind. I know 19 years old who married someone who was 40. Now they have 2 kids and she is very unhappy. It is not about the age difference, it is about maturity f the younger person.

Of course, first of all for a guy to look at such a young woman, he has to be messed up, and also the girl has to have some other issues, I think mothers here play a very important roll educating their daughters in what is good or not, who can harm them or not.
