Quoting HopingforaMiracle:" Try to press charges since that it is statutory rape"

Actually it isn't in many states. Statutory rape laws generally allow for a maximum of 5 years in the age gap.

I think it depends on the situation. Is this a family friend who grew up with her, a random kid from online, etc.

Even if I did really like him there would be boundaries established.

I can not believe how many of you would want your daughter to raise a child on her own. sad.

She's already pregnant forbidding them to see each other or pressing charges will only push them together. He is stepping up and taking responsibility which is more than I can say for some men especially at the age of 21. Be supportive your little girl will need your help and guidance and hopefully things will work out for thebest

Quoting Ravey Candyass:" lmfao. let's get back to reality now sweetie."

Considering this is hypothetical for me, I'm not too concerned with reality. So sorry.

I'd be supportive of him stepping up, but he is not moving into my house or staying the night. But I would not press charges ( here there is an age gap anyway) cause my daughter will need that child support

I would support them but seriously wonder how I didn't know my 16-17 year old child was dating a 21 year old

For those of you crying about stat rape, young rather your grandchild have no father amd your daughter be a single mother?

I would be supportive of him stepping up. I don't think that 4-5 years age difference means that he's a horrible person. Sending him to jail would force my daughter to be a single mom and cause the baby to grow up without a father.

Press charges. No doubt, I was 16 and pregnat and bday was 23. I'm just now pressing charges against him. He's wrong and took advantage of child imo. He disgusts me

I'm sorry but even if it is statutory rape legally, if you're 100% sure your daughter gave her full consent, there's no way you should even press charges. That's just bullshit to me.

Why would you guys press charges? You would rather your teenager parent on her own than put your feelings and ego to he side and let the father go on about his business? Because that's what it is. Pressing charges would be only for yourselves, not your daughter's well being.

16 is not old enough to live a life.

I would fill my child's head with everything they will miss out on, BC it true, and hope they chose to end the epregnancy. A 22 year old should have nothing to do with. 16 year old. Get a life! A job! Get away from the hs sophmores
