What are your opinions?
The couple have her parent consent so, YES, it IS legal.
The man is not trying to get in her pants, and how "been together" for over a year.
The man is a "friend of the family" so he has utter most respect for her family, and vis versa.
They talk about their future and have known each other even before dating.
Is this "wrong"?
Or can it just be fate.
Mind you, there are MANY couples 10 years apart.

It sounds a lot worse then it actually is. It depends on the people, really. He may be 26 years old, but act younger. Or she may be only '16 years old' but act way more mature for her age. If they mesh well together then both can contribute to the relationship, not just him because he's older.
I'm not sure if it makes a difference that the parents consent of this relationship, either way you should keep it on the DL until you turn 18 ;)
On your last part of people being 10 years apart. Yes I definitely know there are couples of big age difference. Like Hugh Hefner and Holly for main example. But then again, they are both older then 21. The years before that age you're still growing up and changing, after that, your lives are around the same level, you're officially 'grown up', holding down a place of your own, jobs, life, etc. You get what I'm saying? That's the only worry that would arise is that he is what he is, 26. He's doing all that, while you, 16 years young, are still growing up3
