Dear Panel, I am currently 17 and my girlfriend is 16.

legal dating age difference rules-74

I can't tell you "everything" because I don't know everything, but I researched the relevant California penal codes at Ageof

A lawyer or your local District Attorney could answer any more questions you have.

Ohio law doesn't restrict "dating," but minors under the age of 16 cannot legally engage in sexual conduct with an adult over the age of 18.

Generally, if an adult engages in sexual conduct with a minor under the age of 16, that adult has committed statutory rape.

And if you're asking about sex, the age of consent in Maine is 16, and therefore it is legal (but not advisable, in my opinion) for a 16 year old to have sex with a 23 year old.

In many other American states, it would be illegal. You will change and mature as you pass those milestones and deal with the temptations those milestones allow you.A 25-year old has already passed those milestones, and he is probably exposed to many situations that you are not legally ready to experience.And if you're below the age of consent, sex with someone your age could land him in to jail.I have read the penal codes and they are confusing so I thought I would ask you about it.Could you please tell me everything and maybe show me laws to give me a little more confidence? Dear Jeff, It seems arbitrary that sex with your girlfriend becomes illegal when you reach your eighteenth birthday, but it's true.I want to know if just dating him is illegal or if my mom was just trying to scare me because she didn't like the other guy. – Confused in Kansas feamle, age 21, USA Dear Confused in Kansas, Dating (without sex) is legal regardless of your age. Your mother might have been scaring you because she is alarmed that you show a pattern of dating children when you're supposed to be an adult.
