No, the age of consent is 16 in New Jersey, so the relationship is not illegal, but maybe try and consider waiting until you are older.

Parental consent does not override the law if its illegal. Call your local court house and ask them the legal age of consent or adult hood. * The state does not have laws that address the age at which minors can date. It does have age of consent and age of majority laws, that age is 18. When parents consent to a relationship authorities seldom intervene except in extreme circumstances.

Possible-depends on age of consent in your state. There are no dating laws in the United States (as I'm assuming this is where you are from), however, until you are 18 - your parents can lay down the "laws" about who you see, and who you date. As far as sexual activities will depend on the state that you live in.

Yes. There are no laws that relate to the age at which a person can date.

The age of consent of the state in which the relationship occurred is what determines the legality of such a relationship.
