\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nNothing wrong with dating, though doing more than holding hands could get him in big trouble.\n. \n Answer \n. \nWhat is cejep. 15 and 18 dont seem like too much of an age difference but it is. The 18 year old is about to embark on the beginning of their life and major decisions and the 15 years old still has some growing to do, I didnt say growing up, just growing and figuring out their future. You \nmust call the state court your in and ask the legal age of consent, then youll find out if its legal or not. This should happen naturally so if he likes you, you'd be able to tell by his actions, but dont assume, attention is likenness, he is 18 with raging hormones and what they say is true, they mostly have one thing on their mind. Why not just enjoy your teenage years by doing fun stuff with a bunch of your friends and hanging out.....too many complications to young doesnt make for good memories.\n. \n. \n Answer \n. \nAbsolutely! When I was 14 I dated 2 guys that were 18. (Not at the same time of course) It's only illegal if you two do anything more than kiss. Remember, 18 is the guys sexual peak so just be careful in that area. And don't rush your teen years, they're the crappiest years of your life and if you don't go through them then you're missing out;] I say just have fun! Good luck.
The age a person can legally consent to sexual activity in the state of Nevada is 16; however, if the adult involved in the sexual act is 21 years of age or older and is a teacher, instructor, professor, administrator, head coach, assistant coach or in certain positions of authority over the minor at an educational institution, it is a crime to have sexual relations with a student under the age of 18. (Unless they are married)
Course. My brother was 18 and he's was dating a 23 year old. It's only 2 years different.
yes you can there is a 4 year difference allowed in the great state of ohio. my brother has dated a girl that is like 3 years older than him and she turned 18 before he did and they never had a problem with anything.
There are no laws regarding dating in any state of the US. There are laws regarding sexual contact with a minor (which is not limited merely to intercourse). They are two different things.. However, the parents of a minor have the right to determine who their child is and isn't allowed to spend time with, so if the minor's parents say NO to you dating then the answer is NO. But if the parents are okay with you dating, then you can do that.
No, not at all. My parents are ten years apart. There's nothing to worry about. If someone says something about that, don't listen. I went out with a guy 2 years younger than me. It didn't work out, but not cuz of the age difference, something more complicated and I don't need to say it. Anyway, If u like him and he likes you, date. That's all that matters. Good luck with him..... :)
If its sexual its illegal ! if its not sexual it should be legal . but you should make sure its ok with the 16 year olds parents before you start dating. GOOD LUCK!!!
I think it is not because,well I really don't know why but I'm just taking a lucky guess.
it is legal to date yes...but in most states in the us it is not legal to have sex
look,gal i seriously don't know that it is illegal or not. but,if u ask me about it, i''ll tell u .have u got lost ur mind how can u date with a gal.???????????????.
The only illegal thing is if they were to have sex. That is illegal because the 16 year old could be under the legal age. However, it isn't illegal to date anyone, what ever age. A: . If you are just dating , and your parents have no objection there is nothing illegal here . If you start having sex , then you should know the age of Consent in your state or country.

I believe that any person over the age of 18 having sexual intercourse with anyone under the age of 18 is considered statutory rape (can't spell). Just wait a year, and I believe that everything will be OK. Oh, but I assume you aren't married. SAVE SEX FOR MARRIAGE! It's better that way, anyways.
Is it legal for a 15-year-old girl to date an 18-year-old boy if they are both still in high school and they have parental consent in the state of Ohio?
It is perfectly legal but there are certain boundaries becase of the age difference that would be there because of the pressure on the relationship, sex between you would be illegal until you turn 16 and pass the age of consent in your region
It all depends on the age of consent within the province/state in which you live in.
Illegal. Assuming the state laws declare 18 as at or above the age of majority...child molestation, statutory rape, lifelong registration as a sexual offender are just a few of the charges possible.
It's only a year difference. Maybe less depending on the birthdays. But I highly doubt there would be anything wrong with that at all. He's not a pedo. :P
yeah...there's no reason why not. if both you and she don't care about the age difference then it shouldn't matter
There are no laws about dating ages. In most states the legal age of sexual consent is 16, so they are probably alright, but check the laws for the specific state. It isn't a good idea, the difference in ages would indicate that the older one only has one thing in mind..
No, not if he loves her and treats her with respect, and she is emotionally mature enough to handle the relationship.

Yes, there are no laws for dating, it's up to the parents to decide. There are just laws for sex and the age of consent in Minnesota is 16.
No it is noet legal, because the male is considered an adult and so if he try's to do something with you he can be put in jail because you are a minor.
Is it legal for an 18 year old boy to date a 15 year old girl in Ohio if he's already graduated high school?
\n. \nShes a minor. Your educational status doesn't matter, its your age. You can be 19 in high school it doesn't mean you are legally allowed to date 14 year olds. Or, okay---technically there are no laws regarding who you can "date". But as far as participating in sexual interactions---anything from kissing to full fledged intercourse---that is not illegal and you can be prosecuted and classified as a sex offender for a very long time.\n. \nAlthough I know in California there is a 3 year grace period. I am not sure about Ohio, I had read somewhere it is close to a year. Sorry
As long as there is no sexual activity, and I stress the SEX bit, I think you can legally date each other.
Yes there are no laws for dating so just the parents permission. There are only laws for sex where the minor must have reached the age of consent in the state.
There are no laws for dating so that is up to your parents to decide. There is however laws for sex where you have to be age of consent in your state.
Depends on which state you live in and whether you plan on being sexually active. If so, then no it is not legal.
just date and, want ever to people do undressed and keep it to yourself. Have fun and park your car in her garage.
Yes because they are only 2 years apart. _______________________________ Date? Yes. Have sex? Definitely not, because she is under age 18.
There are no laws for dating, just for sex. And as we all know dating does not equal sex so age of consent has nothing to do with this. So yes, two minors can date as long as their parents are OK with it.
Girls brains mature more quickly than boys brains do. This is a reason why most girls actually find boys of their own age a bit childish. I would think that the age-difference described is actually ideal. True love is not about age. It is about ones feelings for each other. Bear in mind that sex is not legal as such in all states or all countries at the age of 16. At the age of 18, he can be punished by law for having sex with a girl under the age of consent. There are some Romeo and Juliet parts intertwined in the law so that teens having sex with a person within 3 years of age will be protected, but I am unsure if this apply in all states or even if it apply if the oldest party has reached the age of consent. Dating however does not have to involve sex.
As long as you both behave appropriately then 2 years is not a great difference is it?
Sure, but some things can go wrong when it comes to age differences. Remember, age doesn't matter. . Yes, it's just 2 years
Sure. You can date anyone you want anywhere [with parents permission, of course] but you can't have sex or take it too far. But make sure she wants it too, first.
No it isn't illegal! But it is illegal for an 18-year-old to have sex with a 15-year-old girl in many countries
Illinois does not have any laws about dating. And the age ofconsent in Illinois is 16.
Ohio has no laws about dating. The laws are about sexual contactbetween them and they are both over the age of consent.
There are absolutely no laws about dating in most places. However,there are laws about sexual contact between them and they are NOTboth over the age of consent.
They can date them, there are no laws about dating. There are laws about sexual contact and getting married, but not dating.
If that's what your both into then there's nothing wrong with it. Noone can tell you who to date !
There are no laws about dating. You just have to be respectful of consent laws.
Legally, there are no restrictions on dating ages, though 13-year-olds and 18-year-olds are unlikely to have many interests in common. In most states, if not all, of the United States, it is illegal for a 13-year-old and 18-year-old to have sex.
Yes the only time you cant date him is if your over 18 Another answer: You may date anyone you want. If you're the 16-year-old, though, your maturity and sanity would suspect. You may not, however, have sex -- unless you want to go to jail.
There are no laws about dating ages, so it is legal to date. There are laws about sexual activity. In most places you have to be at least 16 to consent, if not 17 or 18. Some states have exceptions for close in age, measured by days, not the years.
as long as their relationship does not involve a sexual relationship otherwise, you should check the laws in your area to see if it is legal
it is not illegal for them to date and the age of consent is 16 so sex is legal too.
There are no laws preventing two people from dating based on their ages. A 16 y/o and an 18 y/o can date. That said, some states may have laws against a 16 y/o and 18 y/o having sex.
Yes dating is legal as long as your parents are OK with it. You are too young to legally have sex though.
It is possible for an 18 year old guy and a 16 year old girl to date just as long as there is no sexual contact until the girl is of age.
Yes with parental consent. There are no laws for dating just for sex where the minor musty have reached age of consent.
