Also, it is not legal for the 18 year old to have sex with the 16 year old.It is also illegal for the 18 year old to purchase or share cigarettes or alcohol with the 16 year old.and why do people keep making these threads,regardless of the moral standpoint its illegal. never mind at the age they are not fully mature adults.I am getting really sick of people thinking that just because they are behind a computer screen its okay to talk like there is nothing wrong with this. And let me riterate IT IS NOT LEGAL AND YOU COULD BECOME CHARGED AND CLASSIFIED AS A SEX OFFENDER. I'm 20, and a 15 year old girl was hitting on me a few weeks ago.I am 16 years old and I wanted to know if it was illegal for my boyfriend to be 21 years old.I know that the age of consent in Georgia is 16, but what exactly does that mean...Also various other activities might constitute lewd and lascivious acts with a minor.Remember, even at 16, the law considers the girl to still be a child.
or at least anything sexual they plan on doing together would be illegal...It may or may not be legal for an 18 year old to date a 16 year old.If the 18 year old has a criminal record, or is a sex offender, or is a teacher or coach or in another position of trust or authority, it will not be legal for the 18 year old to date the 16 year old.It is, therefore, extremely unwise for an 18 year old to date a 16 year old.It is best for an 18 year old to date only those known and proven to be over the age of 18.
It is considered extremely socially unacceptable and suspect for anyone in college or in the work world to be dating a 16 year old child who is still in high school.
