What is illegal is if one is a minor/below the age of consent and there is intimacy. In most of Europe the age of consent is 16 and below 18 a minor.
What the situation is in the US seems to rather depend on the laws of the State in question.
please give me ideas on how i should look past this and what i should do with my friends. It is so rare to find someone that you can be happy with...
I wouldn't be much concerned about what other people say, either.
Well we had been friends for years and talked occasionally and one day we started talking over the internet as friends and found we had the same interests and we got along great.
One thing led to another and we decided we would give dating a try.
Something tells me though neither of you will wait that long It's human nature. Think about it, you are ready to settle down because you have 4 years of experience over your girl and your girl is into you now because she is 4 years behind you in experience. Age aint nothing but a number but it does amount for life experience.
*sigh* the bottom line is if she's of legal age where you live then %^&$ the begrudgers. I dont disagree that you guys love each other, but she's 15-16 dude...is a baby, there are still things that she needs to experience and the same advice to you too. I hope that you are the couple that beats all of the doubters but the odds are against you.
And her opinion was that older guys are just looking to get in her pants and arnt looking for a real relationship.
we have not had sex yet and my girlfriend is the one wanting to more then me because i feel that she needs to be 100 percent sure she wants to do it before she does.
Her mother at first was not ok with it but began to get to know me and is completely ok with it and i come over regularly and visit her mom and her sisters and even take her sisters to the movies for fun time to relieve her mom of some stress.
Sex isn't worth spending a day in jail let alone a year or more.
Well, the age difference clearly does present problems.
