California law 18 year old dating minor
Honestly, your teacher, coach, whatever should know better than to engage in a relationship with you if you’re underage. If one of your underage friends is in a relationship with a teacher, please tell someone. Now multiply that and you’ll get a better idea of the weirdness.They’re supposed to be there to guide you through a certain subject or skill, not guide you to the bedroom. No, really, nobody is fit to teach at a school if they’re going to creep on their students. Doesn’t matter, it’s not like they’re approving of you two to be legally married or something. Think of it this way: Imagine being 17 and dating someone six years younger than you. You’re at a totally different stage of life and maturity at 17 than you are at age 11.Statutory rape laws are generally far more concerned with the latter.They protect kids and teenagers from manipulative predators who can easily manipulate their way into a younger person’s heart and bedroom. what if I’m 16-years-old and my boyfriend just turned 18-years-old? Now, here’s where things get a little funky and there’s a name for this funkiness: Romeo and Juliet laws. Trust, it’s really not as over the top and fatal as it sounds.
This means that some statutory rape laws exclude situations where the age difference fits a particular time frame, like if the older partner was less than three years older than you, or if you were over a certain age–say, 14–when you two had sex.I was mature for my age as a teenager, people always thought I was older than I was.The fact that I was tall and was an only child (SO MANY ADULTS ALL THE TIME) helped, on top of the fact that I was well spoken and pretty smart; I was talking to adults about politics and current events all the time!Every time we write about it we get a ton of comments claiming that we’re being unfair, that we don’t believe in true love and that we’re old fuddy duddies who aren’t getting any.Well, I can assure you, we’re none of those things, but we are definitely young women who are trying to look out for y’all.
