Just curious, I was not sure if they rounded the year or what and if it was okay or not, because technically they are under a 3 years difference.
What is your definition of "date"? Sex? Read the different degrees of sex abuse in the Alaska criminal statutes. http://www.touchngo.com/lglcntr/akstats/Statutes/Title11/Chapter41.htm
Sure they can date if no sexual contact. Given facts provided, a primary question would be whether or not they currently live together? Does the 18 year old have authority position over 15 yr old in any way? The 18 year old should avoid sexual contact and/or sexual penetration. It's just the right and cautious thing to do. If there has been contact, then depending on the facts, 18 yr old could be guilty of sex abuse of minor or may not be guilty of any crime. Again, it would help to know if they are living together or if 18 yr old has position of authority/power over 15 yr old... Simple solution is be smart and wait until 15 yr old reaches age of consent (16).
