Is dating someone under 18 illegal in canada
We just wanted a relationship that was strictly just spending time together and sharing our days.
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.
Dear Not Sure, Anyone can "be" with anyone else, regardless of age; it's a Constitutional right (known as "the right of the people peaceably to assemble") given to Americans in the First Amendment.
Does anyone have any experience with the legal situations that may come into play when dating a girl that is under 18 when I am over 18?
Any advice as to where the line is as far as legal/illegal would be very helpful. You're not likely to get punished for anything, but it's always a possibility.
Dear Reader, We've received more questions about statutory rape concerning age-gap distinctions, so I'll try to answer what I didn't cover in the previous article on statutory rape. Dear Panel, If a minor has sex with a minor for example: a 17 year guy having sex with a 17 year old girl is that statutory rape since they are both of "legal" age to have sex?
Ashley female, age 17, USA Dear Ashley, If both people having consensual sex are the same age, it's not statutory rape.But it may be confusing to some people about the term "minor" and the concept of when it is "legal" to have sex. I read that as long as there is no more than 3 years' difference, it is legal. Confused female, age 16, USA Dear Confused, It is illegal to have sex with him, because the age of consent in California is 18."Age of consent" and "age of majority" are sometimes legally distinct, depending on where you live: Dear Panel, I am 16 and I am dating an 18 year old. If someone were to press charges against him for statutory rape, the two years' age difference would make him guilty of a misdemeanor, which carries lesser penalties than If he were three years older, when it would be a felony.GG.i know i kid who dates (well, im sure its kept under wraps) this girl...he is just turned 19, and she is like 16...she'll be 17 in like 6 months....I can't tell you "everything" because I don't know everything, but I researched the relevant California penal codes at AgeofTags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
