Most parents have some sort of an idea of the kind of guy they’d want their daughter to marry. Conversely, there are qualities most parents would consider to be a negative in a son-in-law.
One of those is being the same age as the parents:
A 40-year-old high school teacher and cross country coach has resigned and married a 16-year-old student.
A marriage license shows Brenton Wuchae married Windy Hager in Brunswick County, N.C., on Monday. The county board of education approved Wuchae’s resignation Tuesday — a week after he had requested it.
Maybe some sort of compromise–like the idea of waiting until the girl was 18– was completely unreasonable.
