15 and 21 year old dating
I need answers, Idk what to do, I can't change his or my age.Were only 5 years apart in age, that isn't to bad is it.? also I've known him for 3 years before we even talked about dating. A person 21 and over are "of age" to legally consume alcohol.
For the purposes of the criminal justice system, a minor is a person 10-16 years of age and an adult is a person 17 years of age or older.
Therefore, you may, as a 21 year old, date your 17 year old girlfriend. Click on this link for the thread I'm referring to I know if she were younger, they could file statutory rape charges, but with her so close to adult, I am just not sure. For the purposes of the criminal justice system, a minor is a person 10-16 years of age and an adult is a person 17 years of age or older.
Also, the "unwritten" law for the age of consent for deviate sexual intercourse or sexual contact is 17, making your girlfriend "of age" and competence to make any such decision. I am dating a 23 year old and I was just wondering if it was against the law. The Texas Penal Code is on line, and you can double check there. Go check out the Penal Code for your states to see what the law is in your state. For this purpose, a minor DOES NOT include a 17-year-old. While the age of majority is 18, certain individual statutes define a "minor" differently.
I don't know how many times I have to say this, there will be NO SEX, WHATSOEVER. He can be out to use you..he can really care for you.
You're underage and society doesn't approve. Since he doesn't want anything physical, it seems as if he's a guy that's looking out for your best interests, or it could be that he doesn't want to get jailed for statutory rape.
