My 15 year old step-daughter is dating a 19 year old.
Her father and I only found out today as she doesn't live with us.
And it's not just Muslims; it happens across many cultures and regions. Sinclair has been working on the project for nearly a decade.We are really not happy with it and my partner says he is going to speak to her tonight. She is only just 15, a well behaved girl but easily led - she tried smoking and drinking when she fell in with a more adventurous friend and stopped when they fell out (thankfully).I am obviously worried about what a 19 year old boy wants a 15 year old (fairly immature) girlfriend for!! I have no way of implementing threats etc as she doesn't live with us, visits fri - sun very other weekend.
