My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year now. His grandmother hates it because she is against our age difference. She says it's illegal for us to date and to even be caught in the same car as each other. I'm just wondering if it is actually illegal for me, being 16, to be dating my 19 year old boyfriend.
Dating is fine. Sex before you are 17 is a no no.
This response is only a basic answer to your question and is not intended to be legal advise. It is your job to hire an attorney and to discuss the specifics of this question with him or her. I am not giving you specific legal advise and there is no attorney-client relationship created by my answer to your question. The choice of an attorney is an important decision that you must make and that choice should not be made upon adverting alone.
