Most educational institutions have a policy that bans such romances.
This is because not only is it socially repulsive but also it could expose the school to allegations of negligence and possible lawsuits.
There is nothing wrong in having a close, friendly, healthy relationship with your teacher. The teacher will risk his reputation and even face legal charges and be prosecuted. Nabokov’s makes for a good story but does not make for a happy life in reality.

Education is pursued for a love for knowledge and a thirst for discovery. A teacher is a facilitator as a student learns to react to and love different things in the world.

They may attribute the wrong motives and may see an undesirable nexus between awarding grades and sexual favors. Allowing mentorship to turn into romance breaks the trust on which a healthy student-teacher relationship is founded.
Ancient civilizations like India attach great importance to the student-teacher relationship, which has been traditionally idolized.
