I really really like this dude and I have known him since he was 17 and me and him just started dating 5 months ago I just wanted to know if it’s legal to date him I am turning 16 in April and really wanna make this one last because I think he could be the one for me
There is nothing in Texas law that prohibits a 15 year old from "dating" a 19 year old. Sexual contact between a 15 year old and a 19 year old is prohibited. If there is sexual contact your "the one" goes to prison for up to LIFE. I can almost assure you that if he is arrested for having sexual contact with you he will soon not be your "the one". Sexual contact involves any touching of anus or genitals with intent to arouse. Keep away from sexual contact and who knows? He may be "the one" after all. Good luck to you.
