I'm a 13 year old girl and the boy I like is 16. We both don't believe in having sex or anything until marriage, so there will be no sexual contact of any sorts. Is this still illegal?
Yes. There is nothing unlawful about a 16 year-old dating a 13 year-old when there "will be no sexual contact of any sorts."

Without sexual contact, this isn't going to be illegal. Best of luck!
