I have a 14 year old daughter that has been "seeing" this boy for 8 months now. He is 17. They NEVER are alone together and they want to wait until after she is an adult to have any kind of sexual relationship. He is going away to college in August and has decided to buy her an engagement ring that is worth over $1,000. He is a nice young man that does not get into trouble, has great grades, is involved in several different activities and really has a lot going for himself. But my daughter is only 14. She is a very good girl. She gets good grades, has never been in trouble with the law and is a good girl at home though she can slack on chores sometimes. But engaged at 14? Does anyone know if there is any laws about this? Would us as the parents be responsible for the ring if lost? Any thoughts about any of this? I am totally shocked and confused. By the way Dad is very against it, he does not approve.
