Windy Hagar married her track coach at the beginning of the week after coercing her folks into signing a consent form. She is 16 years old and a Junior in high school; he is 40 years old and just resigned from the staff at her school. It is the fourth case in the past year or so in North Carolina with an innapropriate relationship between a kid and a teacher or a coach.

I do not have any kids yet, but I can not fathom allowing my daughter to do something like that. I probably would have some harsh things to say if she tried marrying somebody twice her age when she was 18 or 21, but at 16 I have to think that I would move our family out of state rather than become a party to this whole situation. Maybe it is because I’m a yankee and I grew up near the top of the country, but I can not understand why a parent would allow their daughter to get married so young, ignoring the age difference between her and her husband.
