16 and 23 year old dating
You should find out the statutory rape laws for your area, and proceed with caution.
And if you're asking about sex, the age of consent in Maine is 16, and therefore it is legal (but not advisable, in my opinion) for a 16 year old to have sex with a 23 year old.
Now I am 21 years old and I like a 17 year old Christian.
I want to know if just dating him is illegal or if my mom was just trying to scare me because she didn't like the other guy. Confused in Kansas feamle, age 21, USA Dear Confused in Kansas, Dating (without sex) is legal regardless of your age. Your mother might have been scaring you because she is alarmed that you show a pattern of dating children when you're supposed to be an adult.
Maybe, it's over-stepping....you really want to be friends with a woman who will allow her 15 year daughter to do this? and ps, when a child says they are not having sex...
The girl may think this, but I guarantee you the guy is grooming her. It's illegal and sick, the police must be involved. Kick the man in the balls and never allow them to see each other.
