Relationships where one member of the couple is much older than the other only causes a problem in special cases; I believe it is wrong for a 18 year old to take advantage of a 15 year old however, it is perfectly natural for people of different ages to have strong meaningful relationships. You"re very specific about the conditions of the relationship would you say that if the woman was 18 and the man 15 it would still be wrong?
Having an older partner is very common for teenage girls particularly because generally the relationship is more mature and whether the girl is ready for that maturity is down to the individual person. However, I think teenage girls in older relationships do need support and shouldn"t feel isolated because when a child is put in a situation of isolation like that, problems can occur and that is when the child becomes in danger. Circumstances like the couples knowing each-other for a long time does strengthen any relationship, in this situation it creates an emotional connection between the couple rather than a purely physical relationships. I feel that most people have been so scared of older men that teenage girls who do find themselves in a relationship with an older man are pushed into a stereotype that could make them more vulnerable.

I don't understand the reason why Pro set this debate to United Kingdom.

Does Pro believe that 18 year old being in relationship with 15 year old outside of UK is admissible, by definition of this motion?
