What do you think of this guy. Sounds really sketchy and inappropriate to me that the relationship just all of a sudden just happened at 18 and even if it did its still really kinda wrong, 41 divorce with kids, young attractive 18 year old girl and movin in together hmmmmm....... I think Im gonna have to side with the mom on this one.

Sketchy to be sure. But if there's no substantive evidence of abuse, there's not much to be said. She's an adult and no matter how gross it is, it's no business of mine who she loves or sleeps with.

*Shrug* As Senordesol said, she's an adult and old enough to make her own decisions now. It seems the mother is more butt-hurt over her daughter leaving her house rather than actually having a legitimate complaint. It might not be very professional of the teacher but he quit his job when he announced it so no problem there.

The guys last name is Hooker? Wow, thats gotta suck.

As for her, well, she's 18 so it's her life. Don't know if someone can be charged for dating a minor after they've turned 18 though so the mom may or may not be S.O.L.

As a training teacher...this is fucked!

I am constantly told that this is completely taboo (rightfully so) and I will be VERY surprised if that teacher manages to keep his job.

As for the relationship, they are both adults so they have the freedom. If I was principal though I would fire that teacher for sure (can principals do that in the USA?)

I don't think it stretches the imagination too much to think that they were smart enough to hold off on being physical in their relationship until after she left the school.

Well she's not his student anymore, presumably for their ability to have that relationship.

It's not right. You think at 18 you magically become wiser and forget all the ways that other people affected your thinking, or even brainwashed you when you were a minor? NO.

If she met him after she was 18 then fair enough. BUT THAT'S NOT THE CASE.

Also as someone who was once 18 let me just that 18 year olds are complete fucking idiots. And 99% of them have no business making these kind of decisions for themselves.

There's another topic about this on R&P, and the news source there painted the mother as the cause of this. Apparently despite her age, that girl still had a curfew, wasn't allowed to watch television, or even leave the house without a family member escort.

Obviously she's going to flee such a repressive situation the moment she's legally able to. That teacher is just the closest refuge who's also nice to her, and an authority figure on top of that. Instant bolt hole for a girl desperate to escape her repressive situation at home. It's a bit odd to blame him for all this, while the girl's parents are the real cause.

This is like a really bad Shoujo Manga.

Mortai Gravesend:

It's implied that they were 'too close' when she was at school. The teacher is meant to be professional. The saying 'dont mix business with pleasure' comes to mind.

A little unusual, but seems fine to me. She's 18, she can make her own decisions.

Maybe she'll regret it later and split up with him, but you could say that of pretty much any relationship.

Doesn't seem like the mother has grounds for complaint unless she was prevented from having free will through some kind of coercion.

People today tend to think of 18 as some kind of magic age at which kids can make their own decisions, but humans have been getting married, having kids, and starting families at the ages of 14-17 for thousands of years. Typically by the age of 15, you've already started deciding things for yourself and your own life that may go contrary to your parents' decisions. Can't protect kids forever. You can't protect them from themselves.

I'm on the popular opinion here. She's 18, she's old enough to make decisions and so she must live with the consequences. Maybe they'll live happily together for many years? Maybe they'll break up in five months and she'll come crawling back to her mother. Who knows, I don't see much wrong in this.

He has a daughter almost the same age as this girl he may've statutorily raped, and he's abandoning his daughter (and wife) to go live with this girl?

That's just fucked up.

QFT.

Be surprised if this lasts a year before she realizes she was wrong. But I dunno, maybe I'm the asshole--maybe it is true love. I generally try not to judge these relationships with vast differences in age, but she's just a kid. A 25-year-old dating a 60-year-old, that's fine with me. Unorthodox, maybe, but the 25-year-old is at least old enough to be able to make their own decisions. An 18-year-old is, as you said, stupid (and naive.)

It always cracks me up that people can only legally drink at 21, and yet they're considered adults at just 18. Did anyone, at 18, really feel that much different? I sure as shit didn't.

Pretty much the thing that intrigued me the most about this story is that his last name is 'Hooker'.

Qitz:
The guys last name is Hooker? Wow, thats gotta suck.

And the girls last name is Powers. If they marry they should definitely go for a double barreled name:

"I now pronounce you Mr. and Mrs. Hooker-Powers"

I dunno I think with her being that young it just seems off to me. I don't think he should be arrested and beaten up but I think both her and him are making a mistake. Still that's life, love makes you crazy and all...

Well, the girl looks like she's fleeing her overprotective and oppressing parents. Any decision that keeps her away from home indefinately was a wise one in that respect.

Just another example of the depravity education exposes our youth to. We should ban schools.

SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRCASM.

Wow, I mean wow. I think it's a complete bullshit decision, and while it's understandable from her (eighteen year olds make stupid emotionally based decisions all the time) he's really suspect. Leaving his wife and child to be with her? Can you say midlife crisis? How much in common could this guy an an eighteen year old fresh out of highschool possibly have? Hell, I'm 28 and I don't feel like I'd be comfortable dating a college freshmen any more. Two different worlds, man. Two different worlds.

If she gets married her name will be Powers-Hooker...hehe.

Okay on to the serious discussion. Legally she can make her own decisions. She is probably stupid for doing it but hey, it's her life. As long as the relationship started when it was legal whatever. If they were going at it like woodchucks before she was of legal age then yeah, there are problems.

The thing that gets me the most upset is how fucking smug the teacher looks in that photo.

How could they let a man named Hooker teach at school? HOW AM I GOING TO EXPLAIN THAT TO MY CHILDREN?!?

Jodah:

Sorry but you got that wrong: HOOKER POWERS ACTIVATE!

Good on him. Good on the both of them. I do hope they waited until she was legal of course but eh, as long as they are both happy then that is all that matters and fuck what anyone else in the world thinks.
Of course I may be a little biased as I am banging a 16 year old myself. >.>

And you are how old?

Well yes that would be more amusing but usually when the name is hyphenated the woman's name goes first.

The name makes me wonder though. Where exactly did the family name become Hooker? Often the name was based on their profession in the old country when they came to America...hmm...

Kendarik:

I am 27 good sir. And I hate that I have to pad out my answer to avoid the dumbass low post rule.

Who cares? Not news. If they love each other and aren't fornicating on the classroom desk in front of the rest of the school then I have no issues with whatever they want to do. It's their lives and their privacy.

I suppose if there is any actuall hard evidence (I'm talking sex emails or some shit) then that would be a problem. Otherwise, I think her mother needs to butt the hell out and mind her own damn business.

The girl is 18 now and can do whatever she wants.

lol I know, sometimes that rule is rather silly as one word can deliver all the information needed.

I took advantage of the then age of consent of 14 myself. Older guys rule.

Oh, and I'm not a sir ;)

Yes because EVERYTHING about this couple just screams conventionality.

Funny enough, the phrase 'hooker' actually came from the surname. All due to the reputation of one distinguished individual

The "keep a close eye on these two" lights are going off in my head.

I think they should be left alone. The mother is probably just pissed off that her daughter is doing something that she doesn't approve of.
Maybe they had sex while the girl was still in school, maybe they didn't. On that picture, she doesn't look like she's abused, she looks like she wants to fuck him at that very moment.

Qitz:

Think that's bad? My brother has a friend, and I forgot how her last name was spelled, but unfortunately for her, it's pronounced "Whore". Try being a girl and living with that O.o

You dont need to abuse someone to take advantage of them.

I think that this is suspicious as hell and that he is probably taking advantage of her.

Then again, she IS 18 so it is perfectly legal. If moraly questionable.

Jeez, isn't that a little young? I mean legally? Of course, I can EASILY see the attraction, and I certainly don't judge you for it :3 But... She's 1. Not an adult yet 2. You're 27, mid twenties dude.

That really legally ok where you live? o.o
