Best Answer

In most states the male would be considered a legal adult the female in all states is still a minor. States establish laws pertaining to relationships between minors and adults, including the age of consensual sex. Whether or not the adult male could find himself in legal difficulties depends upon the laws of the state and what the young lady's parents choose to do about the situation. However, the age of consent may inihibe the minor/major law part if both of you are consentent and if your girlfriend is over the age of consent, which is commonly 16.
