Dear Mariella: My year-old daughter is dating a year-old man | Life and style | The Guardian
Dating is not a problem. But the year-old would have committed a crime if s/ he were to film or photograph any sex act, or if s/he had a special There is absolutely no illegality when a year-old dates a year-old. Is it illegal for a 22 year old to date a 16 year old turning17 in two months in florida. This should be the youngest you can date so a 22 year old would be (22/2 = 11 + 7 = 18) Personally, i wouldn't worry about a one year difference (17 vs 18). In England you can date anyone you like from the age of Parental consent does not matter. But you may legally "date" a 16 year old if you are 22 years. old. You cannot "date" anyone under the age of.
He's in a new relationship and chooses to believe what he wants; he points out that she's off his hands now she is over I am fed up with her lying to me, but she is my child and I want the best for her. Should I confront her with her father there, too? Should I speak to the man she is having the relationship with? I don't know what to do. I'm not really sure what your goal here is - and I'm fairly certain that you're equally in the dark.
Is your intention to get her to end the relationship, to encourage her to confide in you in order to improve the relationship between you, or to have a family showdown? Your husband may not be all you hoped for, but he's certainly got a point. Your child is now an adult and any jot of juristic control that you once had over her comings and goings and general choices in life is no longer in effect.
That said, she has chosen to remain under your roof and if your intention is to force her to end the affair, then I suppose that is your one trump card. Having not sought an independent lifestyle, she has to some extent forfeited her rights to one, and could potentially be pressed to disclosure under threat of eviction. But what exactly would that achieve? Either she would depart your house in unpleasant circumstances or you'd force an admission which you would still be powerless to act on.
I think the best thing you could do is stay her friend and give her your support and advice as she navigates the landscape of relationships and sex in college. I think it's really sad that some people in this thread are saying you can't be her platonic friend and should drop all interaction with her.
But I do think you need to consider your relationship carefully and communicate with her VERY clearly from now on. I think men have an easy time picking up younger women. Younger women, in my experience, want to learn everything that a more mature man can teach them. In the teens, a single year makes a big difference in terms of maturity. You've gone through the experiences of living on your own, finding work, and supporting yourself financially and emotionally.
A year-old still has Mommy and Daddy's support to fall back on if anything should go wrong.

You're well beyond that point-- do you want to have to sneak your girlfriend out of her parent's house to stay out late? Want to take her to get drunk with your friends? You're at different stages of life; its not to say that you can't love her or share an emotional bond, but I think it will be a fragile bond due to the difference in maturity and the barriers created by the law and social norms.
She's probably enamored with you because you have so much more experience than her, which I entirely understand. But at some point, you'll want someone who understands your experiences and can teach you a thing or two.
Its easy for older guys to pick up younger women-- but I'm not sure if they satisfy our needs.22-Year-Old Says Relationship With Her Husband’s 21-Year-Old Daughter Is ‘Toxic’
I mean it - do not EVER let yourself be in any situation where the two of you are alone - without witnesses - in a social setting. For her protection, and for yours. No matter how honorable your intentions or hersthere may be other people who may try to turn any opportunity into a chance to "get" you.
Whatever you do together, do it in public - go to the zoo, concerts, parks, etc. In your case 0. Sorry, looks like you have to wait till you're 23 and she's Yeah, I know it's not a real rule but it does have a certain intuitive appeal. B On the other hand if you can keep it non-nude for a couple of years, then that's ok too ; posted by singingfish at 5: There is really no upside to having this relationship at this point.
Arizona society has issued its opinion on the issue, wrong or not. You can fight City Hall on this concept, and maybe win, but it still means a fight. Fights are costly and since the 'other guy' is much bigger, your chances are slim to none in prevailing. Its wiser to avoid a fight.
What's truly remarkable about Mr. Blackout, is that you are doing it in advance! This will come in handy over the next few decades. Congratulations on making a good choice and taking care of both of you.
Are you freaking serious? When true love knocked on my door, she'd just barely turned sixteen; And I was a little bit nervous, if you know just what I mean. But I heard somewhere that true love conquers all, and figured that was that, then I started havin' dreams 'bout bein' chased out of town wearin' nothing but my cowboy hat.
I said, "No deal We did not actually have sex, though it was very difficult. In the end, despite that she was very mature for fifteen, the age difference wound up being a problem. This is a distinct possibility that complicates things further. Shame about the law, but there it is. A friend of mine dated a girl that was under 18 in Phoenix, AZ. He was probably 19 or This was a few years back, so I don't remember exact age. But, he got consent from the parents and started dating this chick.
A month down the road, he pissed the girl off, which in turn pissed off the parents and they took it to the cops. They warned him to stay away, but how could he? He already spent a month dating this chick like every day and he wanted to work things out.
And you know she probably only stayed upset for like a day or two, while the parents never forgot. So while trying to work things out picking her up from school, taking her out more, etc he somehow ended up in prison for few years. I guess the moral of the story is that parents can change their mind about consent while you too are deeply in love.
Especially with this discussion here, now, in the public record. There were upsides and downsides but ultimately it didn't work out. I couldn't go to bars with him which was a pain. His friends' girlfriends were older and thought I was too young and weren't particilarly nice about it. He wanted to have sex and I didn't want to.
In my world this was normal and in his world it totally wasn't.

When I stayed out late with him it was, again, normal for him and really not normal for me. In fact, my Mom flipped out once when I came home at 3 am and threatened to have him arrested for statutory. That fight has created a rift between us to this day my Mom and I. In the end, we broke up because I didn't want to have sex with him.
In looking back at it, he was somewhat immature and generally into dating high school girls, which seemed cool to me, a high school girl, at the time, but now I'm sort of like "what was he thinking? If it were me, I'd wait and see what college brings her, assuming she'll ber more independent from her family, out on her own etc.
On the off chance that she's the one for you, she'll still be there. Ok, good, my work here is done for those of you who are late to the game. Congreve posted by bilabial at 8: You don't want nothin' to do with this. Be nice, but be clear that she is too young for you to date. Recommend she date some young men nearer her own age.
Even without the "jailbait" angle, this guy could murder you or get a cop buddy to do it and get away with it. You could be shot while "resisting arrest" or something; not too long ago a cop in my city shot a guy in the back as he was running away "because he feared for his life". Try to stay out of jail. This means having a little sexual discipline, but it isn't like you can't touch each other.
Try to take it very slow. She's really young and naive and her parents are divorced so she'll have some issues. This is always essential when dating. Be open and honest with yours. Having a cop in the family is always good. What a bunch of whiners on this thread. Like age gaps never worked out in relationships. Check out the divorce rate.
17 year old dating 22 year old... wrong?
Being the same age never helped anyone. Wait until she is 18 to start dating her. If you fall in love for 'er and 'er and get married, it'll be a romantic story.
I would run run run run from any grown man who dated a high school girl. If you don't, there are two things that will happen- you'll stay together until you die, or you'll break up.
If you fall in love He learned the valuable lesson that if you actually have to look up statutory rape laws in your area to make sure your relationship is legal, you really shouldn't be in that relationship. He didn't let it happen They've been married over 30 years now and have raised 3 great kids.
While David Sonn, a criminal defence solicitor at Sonn Macmillan Walker, tells me about the possible criminal implications of sending explicit photos. It counts as an offence of distributing an indecent image of a child and is something you could receive a police caution for.
You could even end up on the sex offenders register. Detective Sergeant Jan Rusdale of the Nottinghamshire force warns: When they come to getting a job this would then count against them. That means that a year-old who can legally have sex cannot legally send a naked image. It's just as bad for a year-old as a year-old to sex.
