    The girlfriend's parents didn't even try to talk to Kate's parents about it.  Instead, it looks like they watched the clock for Kate to turn 18 before springing this on her.

    And yes, if this was a heterosexual rather than an LGBT relationship, it would be no less petty.

      There's a lot of misinformation in this diary, some of it put out by the older girl's family.

      The affidavit specifically says that they started dating when the older girl was already 18 and the younger girl 14.  The younger girl's parents didn't "wait around" till the older one turned 18.

      Additionally, I recall reading elsewhere that the younger girl's parents did go directly to the older girl on multiple occasions and tell her to back off.
