I agree with Maestro.
We all need to stop pretending that everyone agrees that teen sex is bad. We also need to stop pretending that it is okay for the people who do think it is bad to force their opinions onto everyone else.
You said, “he recognized that it was not the wisest of decisions”. I think if you replaced “recognized” with “decided”, that is fine.
If a person is old enough to legally drive on the same roads that my family does then that person is old enough to legally make decisions about sex.
And if my children were having sex with someone and not being exploited, then I don’t care what age they or their partner are – I don’t want government involved in it. If something needs to be changed, I’ll work with my children to do it. I need government out of my life. I don’t ever want their police to be speaking to my children without me and/or a lawyer present.
