A state's legal age pertaining to a minor engaging in consensual sex does not necessarily grant immunity from criminal or civil actions being taken against the adult who is involved. Ohio like ALL states have other laws that apply to ANY relationship between a minor and an adult. Some of those are, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, coercion and/or intimidation by an adult person in authority, endangerment of the well-fare of an underaged person, corruption of the morals of a minor, subjecting an underaged person to pornography, alchohol, illegal drugs, and so forth. The state reserves the right to apply such laws and the penalties prescribed, w/o the co-operation of the minor and/or the minor's parents or legal guardian. In a case with such a discrepancy in age it is quite likely that the adult will face numerous legal problems, especially if the minor's parents object to the relationship.

No, the age of consent is 18 there. You can still be in a relationship just not in a sexual relationship.

A minor can never agree or give consent. Legally they are not considered mature enough to do so. Their parents or someone else can not give their permission either.

Jailbait is slang for a minor who is under the age of consent for sexual activity and also implies that a person above the age of consent might find this person sexually attractive. The slang term stems from the fact that the older person could be charged with statutory rape if he or she engaged in sexual relations with the minor.

You're a bit strange would be the simplest way of putting it. But there are no laws about dating. There are laws about sexual contact. And this could be illegal in a number of states and countries.

No. The 'Unlawful Sexual Relations' are outlined in Leviticus 18 with some listed here: Leviticus 18:13-18New International Version (NIV) 13 "'Do not have sexual relations with your mother's sister, because she is your mother's close relative. 14 "'Do not dishonor your father's brother by approaching his wife to have sexual relations; she is your aunt. 15 "'Do not have sexual relations with your daughter-in-law. She is your son's wife; do not have relations with her. 16 "'Do not have sexual relations with your brother's wife; that would dishonor your brother. 17 "'Do not have sexual relations with both a woman and her daughter. Do not have sexual relations with either her son's daughter or her daughter's daughter; they are her close relatives. That is wickedness. 18 "'Do not take your wife's sister as a rival wife and have sexual relations with her while your wife is living.
