Laws vary greatly from state to state. I would call a lawyer in your state who deals with sex crimes. He/She should easily be able to tell you the age of consent. Good Luck.
Generally, a 16 year old and an 18 year old can engage in sexual intercourse under MO law. Whether it's smart is an entirely different question.
