I just found out my 17 year old daughter has been seeing a 36 year old

I am so freaking out and I can not believe this is happening. My 17 year old daughter put herself in a relationship on facebook. I knew she was seeing someone but I didnt realize his age. I was just shocked. I didnt know what to do I called my husband up and told him what was going on. I dont even know how to handle this. She graduated high school early and is in community college (where she met him) so I have always thought she was pretty responsible. The age of consent here is 16 so it is legal that they are dating and even if they are having sex. Even if I tried grounding her at home she would see him at school. I am just confused my head is spinning.

How is it legal if she is by law still a minor?

I would all to meet him before judging to much. If they're both in the same school they could have things in common. How long until she turns 18?

Clearly you cannot stop her or make her stop seeing this man. All you can do is support her and her choices.

She said she really likes him and she will do anything to see him.

Not much you can do, make sure she is on birth control

Well, apparently it is legal for her to consent. I do see how it is bothering you though. Have you confronted her?
