Legal dating age in arkansas
Re: Dating Age in Arkanasas Date yes, have sex, probably not.But, the question is really "how important is it that you "date" when he might go to jail as a result"?If he is known to be alone with you while you are dating, he may be vulnerable to charges and allegations of statutory rape.You should find out the statutory rape laws for your area, and proceed with caution. I have read the penal codes and they are confusing so I thought I would ask you about it.Could you please tell me everything and maybe show me laws to give me a little more confidence? Dear Jeff, It seems arbitrary that sex with your girlfriend becomes illegal when you reach your eighteenth birthday, but it's true.Dear Panel, I am currently 17 and my girlfriend is 16.We have our birthdays on the same day which is March 25. Can anyone besides her call Statutory Rape on me including her parents?

And if you're asking about sex, the age of consent in Maine is 16, and therefore it is legal (but not advisable, in my opinion) for a 16 year old to have sex with a 23 year old.
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.
The law isn't nearly as important here as what your parents think and feel about the matter.
There are a variety of legal requirements a couple must meet before they can get married.
Although your case makes statutory rape laws seem arbitrary, a story from one of our readers illustrates why the law might protect someone underage from being exploited.
