State laws determine what is illegal and what is not when it pertains to a relationship between an adult (usually anyone over 18) and a minor (any person under 18.) Consensual sexual relationships between minors and adults are determined by the age of consent laws for the state in which the act occurs. All states have other existing laws that relate to such a relationship for which an adult can be charged and prosecuted if the situation warrants. Some charges possible are, sexual misconduct, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, corrupting the morals of a minor, contributing to the truancy of a minor, etc. And in some instances the serious felony charge of statutory rape. The purpose behind such laws is to insure the safety of minor persons from being exploited by those persons who are considered legal adults. If such laws did not exist it would be much more difficult for authorities to charge and prosecute persons who harm children regardless of the circumstances.
It depends on what you mean by relationship. I'm assuming you mean a sexual relationship and I think it's illegal in all states if one person is 18 or over and the other is under 18.
no, if one person in the relationship is under 18 and one is over 18 then is it illegal
two people under 18, or two people over 18 but not one person under 18 and one person over
depends if the persons under or over 18 if they are under a parent may but if they are over 18 they yes it is illigeal invasion of privicay.
It depends on the state and country but in most cases it is illegal to have ANY sexual relations with a minor if the other person is over 18
Yes it is because when you hit the age 18 you are considered a adult and a person under 18 is considered a child so therefore that is against the law.
it is illegal if you are under the age of 18 but it is not illegal if you are over the age of 18
There is no law prohibiting this unless the older person is in a position of authority over the younger person. (such as a teacher, counsellor, coach, etc) In such case it is against the law if the younger person is under the age of 18.
Illegal? If so, then you need to make it legal and above board for your relationship to last. This is because honesty and integrity win over sneaking around.
Only if the person smoking is under the age of 18. Cigarettes are 100% legal for anyone over the age of 18 in America.
Tell the other person it's over.
move on to the next person
