Different people mature at different rates. Some teens can be just as mature as an adult. So why is it thought of as wrong if a 15 or 16 year old girl dates an adult that's say 19 or older, if their maturity is level? If there was actual love and it wasn't just about sex? Why do adults immediately assume its wrong and that some girls just cannot take care of themselves? Why do they immediately think of teens as children? I'm quite curious.

The popular belief is that older age equals greater maturity just because of the amount of years spend on Earth and the more lessons learned.
However, I think that's a fallacy. I know 40+ year old people who act like 3 year olds who can't take care of themselves and throw tantrums every time they don't get their way. I also know 17 year olds who have maturity and wisdom beyond their years.
If the relationship works for you, to hell with everyone else.1
