Online sex chat viero - 21 dating 17 legal

When explaining certain things to a layperson that is not well versed in legal terminology, it is common to use phrases like "a minor would be considered an adult for the purpose of.....".However, phrases such as this are not actually LEGALLY correct.While the age of majority is 18, certain individual statutes define a "minor" differently.

A person 21 and over are "of age" to legally consume alcohol.

Persons between 18-20 are NOT "of age", but they are still a LEGAL adult.

(is it unlawful if we me and her have sex)***TEXAS LAW*** There are no laws restricting age limits on dating. were to claim that there has been sexual contact- even "petting" , they will be believed and your BF will end up like my son and hundreds of others. Being able to consent to having sex does not change their minor status. In Texas, any person under 18 is a minor for ALL purposes.

Therefore, you may, as a 21 year old, date your 17 year old girlfriend. Click on this link for the thread I'm referring to I know if she were younger, they could file statutory rape charges, but with her so close to adult, I am just not sure. Being able to consent to having sex does not change their minor status. Umm..for the purposes of the Alcoholic Beverage Code a minor is a person under 21 actually.

so i was just wondering if anyone had any advice for my friend on what he should do . I would recommend the 19 year old stop dating the 14 year old before he finds himself in prison. they are 16/23 15/21 this is to let all you people know that we broke up in part to this site and thx in the other to my new gf whos 19 . And that would be hard to do with a "sex offender" label following you.[QUOTE=confused232]The alcoholic beverage code actually EXPLICITLY defines a minor as a person "under 21 years of age" and an adult as a person "21 years of age or older." Indecency with a child EXPLICITLY defines a child to be a person "under 17 years of age." The Juvenile Justice Code EXPLICITLY defines a minor as being "under 17 years of age" and an adult as being "17 years of age or older."[/QUOTE I think you are making this harder than it has to be, it depends on context of the statement and laws, as shown above, you can have sex at a certain age before you can drink, but since you can have sex, it does not give you the right to buy alcohol.

he really does'nt want to break up with her but he kinda believes the friend may go though with threats and is worried to the piont were he can't get a ounce of sleep .i forgot to mention that there is NOTHING going on as sex or such . Oh..then you only have to worry about Class C felonies instead of statutory rape. Being specific depends on the legal definition of the law, based on the crime commited.

Also, the "unwritten" law for the age of consent for deviate sexual intercourse or sexual contact is 17, making your girlfriend "of age" and competence to make any such decision. For the purposes of estates, a minor is a person under 21.

For the purposes of the criminal justice system, a minor is a person 10-16 years of age and an adult is a person 17 years of age or older.

You might encounter one problem - if your girlfriend's parents dissapprove of the relationship, there is nothing you and your girlfriend can do. What you are missing is that regardless of the age of consent, her parents still have the final say on whom she can see, talk and date.
