If you don't mind, I simply need to know what is legal and what isn't.
I'm sorry that you feel that way, but we are in love. We are not going to have sex; it is against our convictions and beliefs.
Even if you say you are not going to have sex, you may end up doing it anyway. Minors are immature and that is why they are not legal adults. You can also wait for the minor child to reach legal age.
Plus, my neighbors met when he was 20 and she was 16 and they have been married 70 years! Whoopsi - Your question about the law has been answered.While it is not illegal to date your sixteen year old girlfriend, please keep in mind that if you end up being convicted of having sex with her, even though the age difference is not big in relative terms, you will be branded as a sex offender for the rest of your life.I know several people who met each other in middle school or high school and managed to resist the temptation to have sex (or at least they weren't caught ), and wound up getting married at 19 and 20 - some of them are even still happily married.Age differences can make relationships more difficult, however a 3 year difference as you get older is really not all that significant.Because they are in love NOW, Zigner And dating IS just dating (if they are smart).
