In Texas what is the legal age of majority and what would be the consequences of a 22-year-old female letting a 17-year-old live with her?

The age of majority for the state is 18. An adult who knowingly

allows minor to reside with them without notifying and receiving

permission from the minor's parents or legal guardian can be

charged under criminal statutes and will be civily liable for the

minor regardless of the circumstances.
