18 year old dating a 15 year old law

However, each state has its own laws that define the age of consent, or the time when a person is old enough "to willingly engage in a sexual act." Be aware of the legal age of consent in your state.All states set the age of consent from 14 to 18; in more than half of the states, the age is 16. So I have a few questions;; Can I continue dating him when he turns 18? Either that or if the law if too confusing, stop having sex unitl you can figure it out (although even that won't protect your boyfriend from criminal action he has ALREADY participated in). From what I am reading - if you and your b/f have any sexual contact, he is looking at the rest of his life on the Sex Offender Registry and MANDATORY prison time. Ive done some research but I am still very confused. What would happen if we did date when he turned 18? Your boyfriend could already be looking at criminal charges. If you want to know if something of this magnitude is legal, you (or more importantly HE) needs to ask a licensed attorney - especially since Florida is VERY tough on those who commit sex crimes against children. Sexlaws.org/answer_board is a good place to find the age of consent for your state as well as answers to other questions about minor relationships.Visit law.cornell.edu/ to see minor laws specific to your state.

It is normal for older teens to be attracted to younger teens, but parents and teens should be aware of certain stipulations in the law.

Beginning to date can be very challenging to tackle, not just for teenagers, but also for their parents.

As frightening as this time may be, it could also be a time of training and helping minors form healthy relationships.
