The 34 year old could get into trouble if they have a sexual relationship with a 17 year old, depending on which state you live in. The 17 year old would mainly need to worry about family issues, not with the law. An adult involved in a sexual relationship with a minor could be charged with Statutory Rape, and be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of their life. It is a misconception that if a minor has reached the age of sexual consent as prescribed by the laws of the state, the adult involved in the relationship cannot be held accountable. ALL states have laws pertaining to ANY type of relationship between an adult and a minor. Likewise many states laws contain stipulations as to age differences, meaning even if the minor is of legal age to engage in a sexual relationship, the adult can still be charged with statutory rape or sexual battery, both of which are high priority felonies. Other charges that can be brought are, corruption of the morals of a minor, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, coercion or intimidation of an underaged person by a person in authority, subjecting an underaged person to, alchohol, pornography, endangerment and many other criminal violations. In cases pertaining minors, authorities have the power to pursue prosecution w/o the co-operation of the minor or the minor's parent(s) or legal guardian. stajectory rape

I think you mean 21 year old MALE, not MEAL. But no, that age difference isn't that signifigant.

Yes! In the state of Louisiana, 18 is the age a male is considered an adult and 17 for the female. You don't even HAVE to be emanciapted for a 17 year old male to date a 16 year old female. It is totally legal!

Yes he can sign it. He will not get in trouble for having sex with a 17 year old. He can only get in trouble if the parents press charges.

You wont get in trouble, but most people will pity you if you arent dating someone that's no more than 2 years older or younger than you

There are no dating laws in Texas. Once someone turns 17, it is legal for a 99 year old to have sex with them.

Dating is fine, but any thing further is not. The 17 year old is a minor and the 30 year old man is an adult. He can be charged with rape if sex is involved.

well if you think hes a good person then its ok. bbut if your doing this behind someones back then you can get in to trouble

A 23 year old should not be dating a 17 year old. Single Dating is when the dating person is ready to marry. The 17 year old is not ready at all. They should group date if they're going to date at all.

You can "get in trouble" for all kinds of things. But there are no "dating laws". But, under Massachusetts law, if the 17 year old girl is a virgin and she is "induced" to have sexual intercourse (which includes many forms of sexual contact), then that is illegal.

There are no laws about dating. There are laws about sexual contact and in Pennsylvania 16 is the age of consent.

There are no laws for dating and the age of consent is 16 in NC so all of that is legal.

There is nothing anyone can do about dating regarding the law so no you cannot get into trouble. If sexual contact is made though then yes he could get into trouble. Both persons must be above the consent age for any contact of this nature.
