The Decree for the Unreasonable Restriction of Underage Relationships (Not to be confused with the International Statue of Wizarding Secrecy or the Decree of the Reasonable Restriction of Underage Sorcery) is a bylaw of the Ministry of Magic, enforced in 2015, which bans parents from restraining and/or preventing one from having, being near and/or communicating with his/her significant other (girlfriend/boyfriend), which is one of the most common laws being violated, as parents either don't know about it or they just deliberately do it. The Ministry of Magic marks it as emotional abuse in 2018 after they got very heated with a single mother, identified as Lilly Black, who unintentionally, but deliberately emotionally abused her daughter.
