Good luck MarcyAnswerYes, a 17-year-old can date a 21-year-old, but if they are having sex, the 21-year-old can be charged with statutory rape, which is treated very seriously in most states. The tricky thing is that the age of consent is 16 (in some states), but you're a minor until you're 18. So, a 16- and 17-year-old can have sex, but if a 17-year-old has sex with someone over 18, he/she (the person over 18) can be charged with statutory rape.
It may be legal, but it's wrong. A 17 year old is a child, both legally and developmentally. An adult has no business dating a child. This is sick, and the fact that the adult is a woman does not make her any less of a pedophile.
Yes they can date, there are no laws for dating just for sex where the minor must have reached age of consent in the state which is usually 16-18yo but can also be younger depending on how old the partner is.
No, I'm only 16 and I'm in bed with a 22 year old
Legally yes, but if you're dating a guy who's two years younger than yourself, don't expect much from them. By the time you're over 23, a two year difference doesn't matter quite so much.
no, it isn't illegal for anyone of any age to have a relationship but the 17 yr old has to be older for both of them to get married
as long as tha bot is 19 and tha girl is 17
It is LEGAL
Yes, but only with their parent's permission.
Nope, it's not weird at all.
Yes, and sex too since the age of consent is 17 there.
As long as the minor
yes as long as you dont have sex
It may be ok to "date" a 17 year old, but having a sexual relationship with her is illegal and is called statuatory rape.
