I'm a 17 y/o emancipated female, my boyfriend is 26 y/o. We live (separately) in the state of Florida. From what I've read, it appears that the section 794.05 does not apply to an emancipated minor:
"(2) The provisions of this section do not apply to a person 16 or 17 years of age who has had the disabilities of nonage removed under chapter 743. "
I would fall under the category 743.015
