IMO (E)

According to the stem, "each of the young people must consent, and before doing so must have the other's consent", if a person B who wants to date A. B cannot give his consent with out knowing A's consent and A cannot give his/her consent without knowing B's consent. Seems like a loop to me. (B) seems probable.

I'd be interested to see the OA.

OA is E. I had originally gone with D.

Does anyone want to take more stabs at explaining this question.
