A: Your daughter is too young to have sex with a 21 year old man, period. IF the father permits them to live together, as "house mates," no foul. If the father allows them to sleep in the same bed, that is illegal and NO the girlfriend has NO liability, because she has NO rights to your daughter. Only you and the father are charged with the responsibility of protecting your daughter's virtue.
