If you are in the US it depends on which state she lives in. The states where the age of consensual sex is set at 18 are California, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, North Dakota, Oregon, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington state amd Wisconsin. All other state ages of consensual sex are under 18. There are a few states that have laws pertaining to age differences between the consensual parties, however such laws are seldom enforced unless there are mitigating circumstances. Given the situation described it is highly unlikely authorities would intervene or the adult male would be charged with a criminal offense.

The age of consent in Illinois is 17. As long as her boyfriend is not her teacher or a school official, he's okay.

Yes, because your only 15 and that means your still a child, your not an adult. You boyfriend is an adult and your only 15... so yeah the guy below me is correct your boyfriend could be charged, or more like be cuffed and thrown in the stall. So the guy below me is correct it is considered as raping.From. echub yes, because you are a minor and it would be considered rape.

If you are within 5 months of turning 18 you can move out and your parnets can't do nothing about it.

No, you are emancipated by turning 18 not by the pregnancy.

Probably not if you two love each other deeply. then you might have no trouble at all, but i have no idea. You might wanna ask your friends or someone else who you trust, the internet isn't always the best place for these type of things :)....:)lb:)

Being pregnant does not make you legally emancipated. Turning 18 or getting married removes the disability of minority.

Before turning 20yo, 1/5 (20%) of Jamaica's women have been pregnant at least once.

No. Getting pregnant does not emancipate a minor or give them any adult rights. Turning 18 emancipates a minor.

Yep. Don't admit that he is the father until you are 18.ANOTHER VIEW: It depends on the laws of your state, and won't protect him if your parent or guardian reports him to the authorities.

I believe it is okay because I have a very close friend who is 2 years younger than her boyfriend and they have a very good relationship

It has to mean something to him/you, so base it on what he likes - and look then for something cheap.
