Is it legal for a 16 year old to date a 20 year old?
1 attorney answer
As a question of law, it is legal to date him. However, a sexual relationship could be trouble for the boyfriend in terms of sex crimes - as you appropriately labelled this question. Legally, it would be least problematic to wait on that until you're both 18.
Whether it is ultimately in your best interest or whether you get the approval of your parents or guardians may be a different assessment that cannot be made here.
