Not a bad influence? He impregnated your fifteen year old daughter! But, the deed is done. Why do you think it is better for her to live with him, rather than you? If you can answer that for yourself, than you can let her go. But, as she will only be sixteen, and unmarried, she must have your permission to go. Someone has given her bad information.just because she got pregnant, doesn't man you aren't still Dad. You didn't mention how old her befriend us. Either he or his parents should be paying to support the child, and your daughters orenatal medical bills. Technically, if he is over eighteen, it was rape, because she is so young.

Good luck
