Thread attached on merging:age of consent
What do you think about it?
I'm not one to wave the moral sword. If the legal age in PL to have sexual relations is 15 and this girl is fifteen, then I see no problem from a legal standpoint.
Other thing is of course the age-difference. You didn't mention his age, but I take it he is much older than she is. If it works out, it's fine with me, but experience tells us that usually those relations don't last long as both ppl are in very different stages of life, especially the younger you get.
For example: the age difference between a 21-year old with a 16-year old is much and much bigger than the difference between a 34-year old and a 40-year old, while both gaps are six years. This is explained by the fact that everybody is pretty much full grown, physically and mentally around their 25th. So if you have a 40-year old, that person is equally full grown mentally and physically than a 15 year old with a 21 year old. The 21 year old is nearing completion of the getting fully grown process, while the 15 year old still has a long way to go.
Another story is the generation gap. A 50 year old could, according to the above rule be very well with a 26 year old, physically and mentally speaking. However, the 50 year old has much more life experience than the 26 year old, so that will collide some time and this is unavoidable. Exceptions do happen, but it's more the rule that it goes wrong. Some say the best difference is about 5 years - after your 25th, that is, others say 3 to 10 years; it's not really clear what works best, guess it mostly depends on compatibility.
So in short, I don't really care if they are a couple :)
