If he is still in high school, and he is not..I always find that odd. Also, if (like the other ladies have stated) your state laws are strict, she could be prosecuted by his parents as a sex offender. Look into it for sure. Some states say 16 is the age of consent, and some are older.

Normal in what way? They are two human beings who apparently are attracted to each other, correct?

If you're inquiring about the age difference, it depends upon the age of consent in your area. I would caution your daughter that the fact that she is legally an adult means that they probably should not be having sex. If you are wishing that she'd just break up with him...I'd have to say you'll probably need to get over it. If they're meant to be together, they will be. If not, they'll figure it out

What are you worried about? She's an adult and it's only a 2 year age difference....

The only concern to be had is if you live somewhere that has a very strict age of consent law set at 18. 'Most' states have a bit of a leniency if there is a small age difference (like 1-2 years), but not all do. Of course, if they aren't sexually active then I see no reason at all to be concerned.
