There is no law for dating. A person of any age can DATE someone older or younger that him/her without legal consequences. This "law" is a common misconception. There is no law that states an age limit for you to date someone older. However, each state has their own law on sexual consent. This law states that a relationship cannot turn sexually until both is of legal age (age of consent). If a person is an adult and have sex with someone under the age of consent, that person of age could go to jail. Most states have the age of consent set at 16. Sexual contact can be considered Statutory Rape or Sexual Misconduct depending upon the state's laws.

no you have to be 18 or older rudeboy

if your eighteen its not illegal but if your older then 18 it is illegal because 17 is not the legal age of consent.

No, the age of consent in Texas is 18, but a 17 year old can have sex with someone who is 2 years older but no more. Since the 17 year is considered a minor it would be statutory rape.

The minor is not in an legal trouble, however, the person who is not a minor can face charges. Having the baby is not necessarily considered the crime, however, the older person could be charged with statutory rape.Ê

Haha, yes it is legal but it is unnecessary I would suggest going for someone a bit older but if you want to you can because its legal.

From what I understand Texas Law says that the age of consent is 17, as long as the older person is not more than 3 years older. So as long as the boy turns 17 when the girl turns 18 it is legal.

The older person will get arrested for/charged with supplying alcohol to a minor. The alcohol will be confiscated.
