Break-ups
Children should not be allowed to date at a young age. I don't care if the relationship is gay/lesbian or straight. If children are exposed to dating at a young age - let's say fifth grade - they are more likely to be hurt in the case of a break-up. I know some people believe that a good relationship will NEVER break-up, but that's not true. Most relationships break-up at some point. If a child's parents divorce, that child cries, what would happen when they break-up with their partner.
Maturity
If the child is not old enough to drive, then who is taking the child. And what about watching over the child. Obviously the relationship is just going to be awkward, and if a kid learns at a young age that they enjoy having a boyfriend/girlfriend, it won't be as special for them later in life. And what about kissing, what if your fifth grade daughter comes home and says "I just had the most wonderful time, he/she even FRENCH KISSED me."

The parents shouldn't be required to let children date at a young age based on societies ideas. If a society suggests 12 year olds start dating, I am sure there will be a parent who says no. It should be a decision based on maturity and comfort between parent, child, and date.

how ild are we talking? Whatever the age it should apply to both sexes not just girls.
And personally, in regards to under 14, F*CK NO!
