    I'd have told his parents in no uncertain terms, "This relationship ends and ends RIGHT NOW.  If I find out they're still together, I'm going to the police--no ifs, ands or buts."

    •  So, your main objection (0+ / 0-)

      is that the parents didn't call Kate's parents before (and not necessarily instead of) they went to the police? You do believe that going to the police was still a viable option if the parents didn't respond properly? OK, I buy that.

      First, tell me how your brilliant idea will pass the House. Second, tell me how Obama can get anything past the House. Then we can talk.

        That and the fact they knew about the relationship when Kate was still 17, but (based on the timeline) didn't do anything until seven months after Kate turned 18.  If they were truly concerned about it, why didn't they say something BEFORE Kate turned 18 in August?

        That's why this situation would stink to high heaven even if this was a heterosexual relationship.
