His mother knew that we were dating and didn't care.We are both Christians and we do not believe in premarital sex.Anyone can press charges against you for statutory rape in California, because she will still be younger than 18.If you are convicted, however, California law will count it as a misdemeanor, and not a felony, because you are less than three years older than she is.
In many other American states, it would be illegal. You will change and mature as you pass those milestones and deal with the temptations those milestones allow you.
It's because of this urban legend that has gone around forever.
Based upon this rule, the only time that a man can date a woman his own age is when he's 14 years old (because half of 14 is seven, and seven plus seven is 14).
So the ripe old age of 14 -- the age when you still have pimples, are as insecure as can be and are unlikely to get anything more than a kiss from a woman your own age -- is the only time when you can enjoy dating a woman your own age? Add seven to that, so you can date a 12-year-old -- an older woman"?
What about if your 10-year-old looks at you and says, "I'm ready to date, Dad"? There is so much a 12-year-old can teach a 10-year-old -- advanced coloring, advanced texting, and so many other important life skills. You're 20 years old and, under this rule, you can date a 17-year-old. There you are in college, and you get to go back to high school again to find a girlfriend.
