No it's not illegal but if you were going to marry go to the lawbook. * There are not laws that relate to the ages at which individuals can date. States establish age of consent laws which relate to consensual sexual relationships between adults and minors. Many states also have laws that govern other issues related to adult and minor relationships. A few are, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, exposing an underage person to pornographic material or lewd or lascivious behavior, and so forth. It would be in the adult's best interest to make themselves aware of such state laws if they are in or intend to enter into such a relationship.
