So if a 15 year old girl agrees to have sex with her boyfriend which is 20 year old but her parents agree on the relationship ( but they warned them not to be messing around) but then she gets pregnant ? But she doesn’t want him to get locked up or anything what can she do or what will happen?
The 15 year old cannot consent. It’s statutory rape and he’s a rapist. In addition, he will be responsible for child support for the next 18 years after the child is born.
