19 and 28 year old dating
Pretty sure Amythest Schaber and her husband of "Ask an Autistic" You Tube fame fall under or near that category & they seem to be a wonderful, happy, healthy couple.As with any situation where the potential for manipulation or coercion exist though, I'd say it has to be decided on a couple-by-couple basis.
Oh, and those belonging to some conservative religions as that power play can be part and parcel of the belief system.And from those, people seem to enjoy projecting it onto every large-age-difference couple. I kind of weirds me out a little, and my parents even had the 10 year gap, my father was 27/28 and my mother was 17/18 when they first met, I was born when my mother was 23.I'd never go for someone that young, but I guess whatever floats their boat, they're both legal and it's not like she's being forced into it.My daughter is dating a wonderful 28 year old guy who is now divorced with 2 young children. At 23 I was in the Army partying every night and if a guy approached me with kids talking about marriage I would have ran for the hills.They are very much in love but my daughter is having a hard time with the fact that he has kids. She is 23 years old and I think another year of just 'growing-up' will help. five year difference, to be honest he may be a wonderful guy but just the fact that he was married, and has children well guy may expect get bored and lose intrest. slowing things a little bit (as simplicity_and a good heart101 said), may help. No matter how great this guy is your daughter is way to young mentally to take on the step mom responsibility so please do not talk her into something shes not ready for right now. I have however seen the father of my children ( husband of 15 years) fall to the ground many times over throughout the years, dating younger ladies with no kids.That she should just take time to her self and not get ahead of her self, @simplicity_and a good heart101: i totally disagree with your post except the last two sentences. for someone if it may not work out, that doesn't mean that it wont work out for others. She could potentially break 3 hearts if she doesn't accept his babies.
If she isn't alright with it, then she needs to leave. As a woman with 2 kids, I made it very, very clear that I was a package deal.
I like to believe it just depends on the maturity level your daughter has, if she's aware that he does come with responsibilities.

A 30 year old and 19 year old are in two completely different places in their lives. I'd just instantly stereotype it as the older one taking advantage of the younger one, because 90% of the time, that's going to be the case.
But if it works for some people, more power to them, and I hope they're happy.
I am 35 and the girl I am with is 24 I have two little boys. after the efforts, if she sees no way, then she may consider to back off.... I've watched the heart break happen over and over for 4 years now.
