I'm in a relationship with someone who is one year older than me and he is concerned that it might become illegal once he turns 18. Also what are the laws about sexual intercorse given our situation? Is it okay to be in a sexual relationship with someone one year younger? Or is that conciderd to be a crime? I am aware that the legal age to have sex is 17 and that both people have to be okay with it of course but I'm unsure on the rest?
I'm in Adelaide, South Australia.
You need to ask a lawyer or research this issue in Australia, as it is something that is determined by the law of your country or your state or province. You can ask a Washington lawyer but unless they know the law in your country how do you expect them to answer a legal question which is specific to that country?
Not sure why you are posting this on a US based legal forum. You need to contact an attorney in Australia or research online to get an answer to this question.
