Even though it never escalated beyond a couple dates, you’d think he was committing a crime by the way everyone was talking about him. We have nearly double the age difference that the first guy and I had, but apart from a few robbing-the-cradle-or-robbing-the-grave jokes, no one really says boo about it.
Less than a year later, I began the relationship with my current boyfriend– at the time, I was 19. I don’t know if it has something to do with our maturity levels, with who he is compared to my previous partner, or if there’s some sort of barrier you pass over when you transform from 18 to 19-years-old where you’ve stopped being barely legal and are no longer interesting.
The controversy of many states' statutory rape legislation is that nobody can agree on what is the proper age of consent because the developmental age of each teenager is different.
The legal age at which lawmakers believe a child is capable of making a reasonable decision and consent is referred to as the age of consent.
A person who is caring for you or supervising you, like a teacher, youth worker or foster carer, can't have sex with you or sexually touch you or perform a sexual act in front of you, even if you agree, unless they are married to you.
However, it is not an offence if the person honestly believed you were 18 or older.
All you need to worry about is making sure you are both happy, healthy, and have clear expectations for one another.
Statutory rape, by definition, does not entail any use of force in the initiation of sexual intercourse.
