14 and 19 year old dating
At 15, intimacy would clearly be considered illegal.15 could be considered Legal under a "Romeo and Juliet" law.The definition of sexual contact is very broad and most kinds of contact could get you in trouble (a butt grab is technically sexual assault if the younger one is under 16.) the 14 year old cannot consent nor can her parents, to any kind of sexual contact.
Ya, now it would be a 20 year old and a 24 year old. "I don't want them to make a mistake so early in life...I'll send them both to jail".It would be far better not to 'date' this young person. (Sexual 'contact' is treated much the same as sexual intercourse in terms of the rape laws.) There are few young men who can resist the temptation that calling the relationship 'dating' will bring.It is a horrible idea for the 19 year old with huge consequences if something goes wrong (like sex offender registration for life and a lengthy prison stay).If he was forty and you were ten it would be legal (but that is horrible Im not condoning that! If you two do have sex he will be done for statory rape and im sure you dont want that for boyfriend so just dont be tempted and you two will be fine :) It is not illegal to date. Here, if one of the people is 18 or older and the other is at least 4 years younger, it is illegal to have sex.If anyone finds out, the older person could be charged with rape - not be careful :) It is not illegal to go out regularly with someone, which is what dating is, regardless of the age difference.
