Age difference in teen dating
Again, state laws really matter in this instance, you could date now and it be okay, but you turn 18 and suddenly you're in prison. Ultimately (and statistically) you'd be way better off not doing anything and just skipping this particular girl.Half your age, plus 7 is the minimum age you can date.Of course local state laws will tell you whether or not it's straight up illegal (even if you didn't have sex, I'm sure shit could get really bad really quick).When I had JUST turned 15, there was a 12 year old who developed early and was really into me, but that is absolutely not worth the drama, so I dodged that bullet.I came up with with a slightly more refined formula of one-third of your age plus 10.In the OPs case it gives an age of 15.6, and otherwise under 25 it's almost exactly the same, but it's much fairer as you get older.
When you're older the age gap isn't as big of a deal, but I remember it was serious business back in high school. When I was 17, my boyfriend was 20 and although that's the same age gap as OP describes, I did so much growing up in the 3 years between 14 and 17 - everything happens super quickly and before you even realise it you've gone from a girl to a woman.If they are over the age of consent, the age difference… Missouri has a addendum to the Juvenile Court Codes which reads an "adult" is anyone who is of the age of seventeen.This law pertains to criminal court procedures ONLY and…Some of those laws are enforced based on the age differences between the parties. There are laws regarding children having sexual contact.Some of those laws can be enforced based on the age differences between the parties.
