An adult can be charged with unlawful conduct with a minor under the age of consent regardless of whether they have sex.
If they have sex, state laws vary from it being 1st degree to 3rd degree sexual assault. Different countries have different legislation regarding most things. The minor must be at the age of consent for sexual contact to take place, which varies from state-to-state but is commonly 16.
Girl's parents are okay with dating and situation in general. You're in LOVE - oh, that makes things better Keep your adult hands off of children..someone your own age.
If you don't mind, I simply need to know what is legal and what isn't.
I KNOW 16 is young...but, then again, so is 19 - and in high school, 3 years is just the difference between being a freshman and being a junior or being a sophmore and being a senior.
Plus, my neighbors met when he was 20 and she was 16 and they have been married 70 years! Whoopsi - Your question about the law has been answered.
*IF* she still feels the same, get together then...after all, LUST is hurried, LOVE is eternal Whoopsidaisy - It is not illegal for a 19 year old to date a 16 year old, but a person 18 years or older that has sex with someone 15, 16, or 17 faces a misdemeanor charge in Virginia, 1 year in jail and a $2500 fine, so it is important that you don't let your hormones run away with you until your girlfriend is 18.
