Probably not, since the age of consent in most places is 16, but the laws are different in each state. However, if it wasn't consensual he could go regardless of age.

It depends on the state. In most states the age of sexual consent is 16 (in some it's higher). If an adult has sex (even if it wasn't 'forced') with someone under the age of sexual consent then they have committed a crime. They can be charged, tried, and convicted. In the case of a child, it would be very easy (with a DNA test) to prove beyond any doubt that this man is guilty. Even if the girlfriend or her family didn't want to press charges, the state can still chose to press charges.

That's the only way a girl can get pregnant...

The only way for a female to get pregnant is for a man to ejaculate semen into the woman's vagina. A girl can't get pregnant from a girl; a guy cannot get pregnant from a girl.

No, a girl can only get pregnant by sperm entering her vagina, not her stomach.

according to my knowledge......she will get pregnant only if she has uterus in her but.....

no more then likely not.. unless he came inside of you but it seems like that was not the case..or was it..

Of course not. A girl can only be pregnant with a boy.

No. You can only get pregnant by having sexual intercourse, where sperm enters the vagina.

No.Answer 2:You can only get pregnant if your boyfriend places his penis against or into your vagina such that some of his semen enters.

If you are a girl, yes.

Well, if you are a girl whose boyfriend, who also has a boyfriend, you ask him is he is bisexual or gay. Whatever his answer, only you will know if you want to continue as his girlfriend, his friend, or if you want to move on.
