16 dating 20
Love and sex should be something to be cherished, a dream to be followed, not subject to scientific formulas dividing ages and adding 7.
16 year olds are expected to be part of the adult world in many respects.
Even if the relationship doesn't constitute an age-related offense, the adult could still be brought up on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor or interference with custody.
The latter charge would come into play if, for example, the minor ran away from home to live with an adult significant other.
But this is beside the point - the maturity gap, and the differing interests argument, is a compatibility issue, not a moral issue, yet it is being framed as the lattter by people who just want to vilify men dating younger women (and, to a lesser extent, older women with an interest in younger men).
If you’re still wondering or if you’re someone else in a similar situation reading this, go for it!
This hiving off of adolescents from the rest of society and ‘keeping to your age’ is a comparatively new trend, certainly in Britain.
When you look at how unprepared people are for adulthood well into their 20s I’m not sure the trend is a healthy one.
Its not necessarily down to the fact I cant get a girl of my age (my ex is 21) but I feel like shes jail bait even though she is legal. She's of legal age so it's fine but I can see why people would have a problem with it, especially if she's immature If you feel like she's jail bait now then you will probably continue to feel like that if you go on to date her.
For example, an 18-year-old high school senior might be dating a 15-year-old high school sophomore.
While sexual conduct would still violate Ohio's age of consent law, it would only be considered a misdemeanor offense.
However, an adult can still be convicted of statutory rape of a 16- or 17-year-old if he is in a position of power over the minor.
Sexual conduct between a student and a teacher, or a student-athlete and a coach, would fall into this category.
