Can a romance between a student and a teacher be the real thing?

Mary Kay Letourneau gave birth to two children and eventually married the young man she had seduced.

At the time, he was too young (legally under-aged) and she was his teacher (inappropriate behavior).

If a relationship is real, then it is better for the student to transfer out of the teacher's class or to wait until there is no longer a student and teacher situation.

For the teacher or student, who is seeking a long-term relationship, waiting until the student and teacher relationship is over before kindling a romance is a good way to ensure a long-term successful relationship.Even if a student is of the age of consent, the situation between a grade school teacher and student is different than in any other educational setting.You are taught from a very young age that teachers are your custodians from the time you get to school until the time you leave.Modern understanding of a romance between a student and a teacher centers around Mary Kay Letourneau's affair with her then sixth grade student, Vili Fualaau.Although the couple was married after Letourneau spent seven and a half years in prison and gave birth to two children, the inappropriate relationship between student and teacher was not lessened because Fualaau became a consenting adult versus when he was a child.
