However, the age of consent is 18 years where the sexual activity "exploits" the young person when it involves prostitution, pornography or occurs in a relationship of authority, trust or dependency (e.g., with a teacher, coach or babysitter).Sexual activity can also be considered exploitative based on the nature and circumstances of the relationship, e.g., the young person’s age, the age difference between the young person and their partner, how the relationship developed (quickly, secretly, or over the Internet) and how the partner may have controlled or influenced the young person., refers to the age at which a young person can legally consent to sexual activity.All sexual activity without consent, regardless of age, is a criminal offence.Well, in some states then technically both of you have broken the law. There never was sexual contact and we aren't planning on it until we are married.This kind of law can be tacked onto age of consent laws, the principle is simple if the act is consensual and the partners are close-in-age (also called close-in-age exception) You're not entirely correct many jurisdictions has whats called "Romeo and Juliet" laws which protects consensual relationships if the partners are close in age, this can also apply to people who passes age 18 dating someone who is a minor.Statutory rape is probably–no, definitely–the most controversial topic for you, our readers.
The police never really answered my question and I'm not sure if my dad is right. That is on my ur opinion and it is not a very good one, how old are you 20 or older? ok guys lets not get into a heated argument everyone has their different opinions and does it really matter that much !??!! i mean i think its fine for him to be dating her without any legal trouble because i see it very often I had the exact same question. It may bother you at first but talk about it and if you really love eachother then I doubt there will be any problems. im a 16 year old boy and i recently got into an relationship with a 14 year old girl..i know 2 years isn't alot but right now it seems such a big difference..i mean i recently graduated from highschool but she has to do another 5 years at her school (yea she's smart) i just don't know how to explain people in college that my girlfriend is still in highschool.. But i understand it can bother umyou if ur in collge and shes in highschool.
