In contrast, prior to the Seniors, one of my daughters broke up with a fellow Sophmore because he was pressuring her (sexually). So, I trust their judgement based on their behaviors. We married 11 years later when we knew for sure we were on the same path in life.
( And I started school early so I was young for my grade ). If the boy is older, it's still fine, but it would never happen.
But really; there are other much more important things to worry about. The other one, also prior to the senior, broke up with a Junior because she found out he was smoking pot. I began dating my husband as a freshman and he was a senior.
The seniors my girls dated were top in their class; clean as a whistle, involved in their communities & the arts ... She said Im trying to go into Aerospace engineering; I dont need to hang out with losers. We both went off to different colleges and lived our own lives but kept in touch and got together when we could.
I would have a problem if their ages were more than 2 years apart, we're not speaking about two grown adults.
My daughter is 10 years younger than her husband (great guy) BUT they obviously didn't meet in high school. Yes, once one becomes legal age while the other is not changes the dynamics.
A senior should be looking to moving on from high school anyway.
And the one left behind will most likely be interested in someone else soonafter . Very few people meet the one they are going to marry in High school .
The only concern that I might have would be for my son/daughter being a senior is if the relationship is sexual and one becomes an adult with the other not having reached the age of sexual consent and someone presses charges.
Well, you didn't really specify the ages of this hypothetical senior and sophomore, so it begs the question of how many years difference there is.
I've known 19 year old seniors as well as 14 year old sophmores.
