I was not allowed to date until the day I turned 18. My parents knew I met a sweet young man when I was 17, but they forbade me to see him. Even though I still saw him on the sly, I never lost my virginity to him until I was 18.
Education is extremely
important. Being too strict and hovering may cause other problems, but it sounds like you are not too harsh. I was much too naive for my age until I was 21.
I don't think people should date until they are at least 16. That young man proposed to me that sultry summer and I would have married him at 18, like a ninny. Thank God I listened to my mother, when she told me I was waaay too young to be a wife.
As for the OP, her story is hopefully a disgusting lie.
