I’ve recently met a Girl and we’ve been hitting it off and I recently discovered she had a birthday and she is now 17 Born In May. Too sum it up She’s born in May, I’m born In November, So May and November and I’ve done some research saying the consent in Texas is 17 and the Romeo and Juliet law saying as long as there no more that 3 years apart in age it’s fine. I think we are 1 years and 6 months apart if I’m correct and is perfectly fine to be in a physical relationship?? Please let me know
Yes, 17 is the age of consent in texas.
