Is it okay for a 16 yo to DATE an 18 yo? Yes it is perfectly legal to date. Nothing in the question infered sex. People need to get it through their heads that just because you went to a movie together or had dinner together it doesnt entitle anything sexual.
In a Nutshell: Sex between an 18 year-old and a 15 year-old is illegal in California, meaning any touching of “private parts” of either, even with consent of both parties (and perhaps even the parents of each teenager) is illegal in California because the age of consent is 18.
In the United States, many states have adopted close-in-age exemptions. These laws, known as "Romeo and Juliet laws" provide that a person can legally have consensual sex with a minor provided that he or she is not more than a given number of years older, generally four years or less.
Normally, age of consent sets the bar at 16 years old with consent of the tutors of the child. You can't have a legal relationship between a 20 years or older and a 13 year old.
Not only is it weird but it is illegal. The age for sexual consent usually comes at age 17, at age 12 that would be considered rape on the 17 year olds part, regardless of if you don't have sex ,you can still be done for rape just for touching the 12 year old in a sexual way.
Originally Answered: Is it okay for an 18-year-old to date a 17-year-old? It's both legally and morally ok. However, nothing even vaguely sexual should take place. The 18-year-old is legally an adult and the 17-year-old is legally an infant.
People of any age can date each other. If either of them are under age their parents have to agree to the dating. It is never illegal to date with parental approval.
California – The age of consent in California is 18. It is illegal for anyone to engage in sexual intercourse with a minor (someone under the age of 18), unless they are that person's spouse. California employs a tiered system where the greater the difference in age, the greater the penalty.
An 11 year old is too young to go out on a traditional date, with anyone of any age. In my opinion, the 11 year old should only date when they turn 16. I think that 11 is way to young to be dating. Unfortunately 11 is not too young to learn about sex, but not mature enough to understand the consequences of sex.
No, it's not, that's called “Pedophialia” and is a crime in most states in the US. The 22 year-old could be prosecuted and go to jail and have their life ruined.
No. It is not illegal for a 13 and 17 year old to date.
The age of consent is 16
The law says that 16 and 17 year olds can legally have sex but, as they are legally children, they are given more protection in law. It is illegal for an adult in a position of trust or responsibility to have sex with a 16 or 17 year old.
The Age of Consent in California is 18
In California, the age of consent is 18. That means that anyone under the age of 18 cannot legally consent to have sex. That's true, even if both parties involved want to have sex.
No. It's illegal by law for good reason. An adult who dates an 11-year-old rarely has good intentions. It might not be sexual now, but that won't stay that way for long.
No, a 12 year old cannot date a 9 year old. Girls hit puberty between the ages of 10 and 14 on average, and boys hit puberty between the ages of 12 and 16.
Originally Answered: Is it legal for a 22 year-old to date a 16 year-old? No states have right-to-date laws. All states have laws stating at which age people gain the right-to-consent (to sexual activity). If all you want to do is date, get permission from his or her custodial parent(s).

I'm actually wondering if this is a troll.... but just in case, the answer is YES, IT'S ILLEGAL. It's essentially child molestation if there is sexual contact of any kind. The 17 year old can be criminally prosecuted, jailed, and branded a sex...
Around ages 12-15, people often start having their first kiss. Don't feel pressured by other people your age kissing people, and don't rush into kissing someone if you are apprehensive. You'll know intuitively when the time feels right.

No, it is not illegal due to just your age difference. It only becomes illegal when there is sex involved, the person you are having sex with is under 16, and you would be either 1 )four years older but less than eight years older than the complainant...
You could start with a simple question at dinner like “hey Dad, how did you and Mom meet?” Give them a moment to reminisce about their own love story . Let the conversation progress naturally and ask what they think about dating where you are concerned. Parents LOVE it when you show respect for their opinions.
In my own experience, it's not wildly unusual for a 15 year old to have a girlfriend or boyfriend who is 13. At those ages, physical, mental, and emotional maturity levels vary a great deal. Sometimes a gap like that is not terribly significant at those ages.

The law does not prohibit anyone from "dating" anyone else. The law does have rules about sexual conduct; but my hope is that, at 11 and 13, that's not what you're meaning by "dating." If you really want to know about these rules, I...
