18 year old dating a 16 year old legality
We just wanted a relationship that was strictly just spending time together and sharing our days.
Now I am 21 years old and I like a 17 year old Christian.
Ashley female, age 17, USA Dear Ashley, If both people having consensual sex are the same age, it's not statutory rape.My mom's grounded me from going anywhere and she said she WILL take him to court. The thing is, its not illegal unless he forces me to do something, or touches me in certain spot. They had consentual sex throughout the relationship and got pregnant. But Texas has an "affirmative defense to prosecution" clause, tried in 1999, which may consider the act "not a criminal offense" because he is less than three years older than she is.They moved from Texas to Florida and tried living together but broke up. She can sue him, however, for damages caused by physical, mental and psycholgical distress from having to endure a sexual relationship, a pregnancy, a major move, and maybe motherhood, adoption, or abortion (you didn't specify what they did about her pregnancy) while being so young. When I was 18 years old I was dating a 14 year old and my mother told me that even if we were just dating it was considered statutory rape.
Meanwhile, just be friends with the 20 year old, but don't get involved with them for now.
