Her father has already had a long talk with the young man and he understands the "rules for dating our daughter". He likes her back, but he is afraid to take her out as he is unsure of the laws regarding dating minors. But as IAAL points out, the 20-year-old isn't likely to want things to end there, and that's a legitimate concern for any parent. However, I have to also wonder why ANY parent would even THINK of allowing their 16 year old minor child to date (even innocently) an adult man.
I'm older than her by a few years, making her under the age of consent (i believe). Her dad doesn't want her seeing me til she's 18, but we still end up hanging out. We'll kiss and be affectionate, but nothing beyond that. While I know a lot of people think that means sexual consent, the more I read, the more it can mean just the ability to make decisions on your own, including those of sexual nature.
Am I breaking the law even just seeing this girl in a one-on-one level, since her father is not consenting of us seeing each other? I've never encouraged her to break the rules of her parents, I just accept the times when she says she'd like to see me. Basically if her father ever filed a police report, I just want to make sure I could never have sexual assualt charges filed against me... While I know a lot of people think that means sexual consent, the more I read, the more it can mean just the ability to make decisions on your own, including those of sexual nature.
I do not feel I am encouraging her to be delinquent.. Actually, the age of consent law simply says you would not be commiting a crime if she were to fall oner her back and say yes to you having your way with her.
It does NOT give her leave to run away, sneak out of the house, or do any of the other actions reserved for adults. And if it were MY daughter you were encouraging to sneak out and disobey my rules, and my curfew, I would do all I could to have you charged.
THE ONLY THING IS, there can be no sexual relations. I don't believe that there is anything wrong with holding hands.
Maybe, kissing, NOT TOO MUCH, but theres nothing wrong with it. Well I just wanted to shed a spiritual light upon this.
I've been with other girls; this is the first time I've been with a minor. Are you willing to put your freedom on the line any more than you allready have, knowing that you have allready molested a child, in the eyes of the law?
I really love her; you have no idea so if you're going to tell me I don't love her, don't even post. Now we're smart enough to know we can't have sex without issues, but we're both ok with waiting. B) We date, and go as far as kidding and touching eachother (all over), but not intercourse, and her parents KNOW about it, but THEN the cops find out. C) We lose control, we have sex, and the cops find out. I still don't have a 100% accurate defination of the "age of consent". But we do love eachother, and she already talks about wanting to stay with me, and we're both more "nerdy" than drooping bling-bling wearing thugs going thru an indentity crisis. I know parents on this forum don't know me from atom, but I can assure you I'm not just looking for a ride. love does crazy things to people ok so at age 16 i cant get stat rape; but what else can I get and why would it apply to me?
I do look young (so I've been told), and she does look older (so she's been told). ANY contact that could be construed as sexual (including kissing, hugging, carressing, snuggling, even holding hands) is illegal. ok so then whats the point of age 16; the age of consent? Is that at that age, only the big dreaded "statuatory" charge can not be brought against you (if you hadn't allready had that hot night), but there are a host of others.
