Shouldn't they? In your experience, do teenagers respond compliantly to the spirit and letter of prohibitions? In your scenario I'd be concerned about why she wants to date an 18 year old 3x loser in the first place. Not saying I'd bless the arrangement or refrain from strongly discouraging it--but I'm glad my girls had the sense and confidence to avoid shitbags.

Possibly, I'd be more concerned about how an 18 year old has 3 felonies and is still walking the streets--pre-18 convictions most likely having been expunged, I'd say he was having a busy year.
Y'all are just too damned serious. Lighten up.
