I do have a relationship with her. I want to keep the peace.

Ok, that makes sense. Given the situation, I'm the kind of person who might impulsively text a conversation just because I had something relevant to say. If you are like me that way, it might help to remind yourself of the goal you actually hold (to keep the peace) rather than saying all the things that you might otherwise say.

Thanks everyone for validating that it is a weird deal.  The only thing I can figure is that both sets of parents and the 25 yo are deluding themselves into thinking she is more mature than she is because she is smart and well spoken and comes off as mature.  

 

 

I think the bolded is the key here.  It makes me wonder WHY they are deluding themselves.  You have to work up a justification for something like this.  She is a child.  Any rational adult would be concerned for the mental and physical welfare of this child.  We're supposed to protect children, especially our own children.  Aren't we?

Yes, and the guy may be 25, but his parents should still be looking out for his best interests, too, and I can't imagine how they could think a romantic involvement with a 15yo child could possibly be a good thing for him (and it sounds like she was 14 when they started encouraging this attraction, which is even worse.)

 

The whole situation is creepy. Both families sound insane.

I think his parents are looking out for their own short-term interests.   e.g. get him married before his father dies.   get him married to someone who lives there so he won't move away from mom.  

I don't want to sound brutal - but THESE are the kind of parents that kids do better if they move far far away.
