what"s the issue, exactly?That isn"t a huge age difference, is it the one is tho in high school and also one isn"t? I"d have a large issue with something prefer a 14 yr old (girl) walking out through with a 24 yr old (boy) due to the fact that of the apparent age differences and also the truth that it"s illegal as well as the fact that a 14 year old girl is supervisor young and vulnerable. Ns did recognize of a family who condoned this situation, I discovered it unfathomable. But 17 and 19, they could be in college or college together, and also be living on their very own no? I had moved the end at around that age.

If the partnership was healthy and respectful, I"d check out it no in different way than two 18-year-olds dating. Some schools are yes, really tightly age-stratified, and I guess that makes human being view it together odd when teens start seeing someone external of your birth-year. Personally ns think tight age-stratification of society contacts is what"s weird. Wherein I live a two-year age-difference in teenager romantic relationships is common and also normal. Miranda

Not a really large deal. Are you worried around statutory rape coming to be an issue? In many places, a close period gap is sufficient to stop the charge. For example, once I was 17, I became pg by a 19yo. Also though he was over 18, he might not it is in charged through a crime bc we were just 25 months apart. If he had actually been a year or two older, he can potentially have acquired into trouble.

It wouldn"t stroked nerves me, yet when ns was 16 ns dated a 23 year old and at 19 ns was dating a 16 year old.
I wouldn"t have any kind of issue with that age difference. Heck, my husband and I started dating at 14 and 17 and also we"ve had 30 years together. Room you worried about the legality of the if their connection becomes sexual....or?
I would certainly be totally fine with it as long as I see that nobody is exploited. If the partnership is healthy I see no problem. Especially I guess in ~ 17 you currently talked a lot about relationship, sex etc. Through your daughter.

With ages that close, I"d be much more concerned v their corresponding maturity levels than their bear dates. I"ve known immature late teenagers of one of two people sex, and advanced ones, as well. I usually prefer to check out partners of similar "age and stage" and also this is an age group through wide variety on that. One ambitious young women v her eye on college at 17 shouldn"t day the exact same young person as her period peer who is hanging the end behind the dairy products Queen might find suitable.
As long as you feeling it would be consensual no matter what lock "got in to". That is always were I attracted the line.
Lets look at it from this allude of view. What if it was 14 and 16 or 20 and 22. Ns think its a safety thing, both the youngsters need to it is in made aware of the laws and consequences. They should be supported and also educated much more then controlled. My boy is 14 and well conscious of the regulations and aftermath and it has made him weary of dating at all. From right here forward we will throw a reminder at him. We have likewise had the the birds and also bees talk and also advised that if anything at every comes up that all cards must be on the table.
I think as lengthy as you have talked over everything (sex, consent, consequences, respect in relationships) with your kid (assuming one of these is your child) climate I see no problem with it. If the 17 year old is still living at house then technically it"s tho a "my roof mine rules" scenario because he/she is no an adult in the eyes of the law yet. However if everyone is respecting the parents" rules because that the 17 y/o ns think that is not too large of an age gap.

My first thought is to make certain no one is break the law. : p even if girlfriend don"t agree through the law, breaking the regulation of the age of consent isn"t a good idea. Seems like it"s age 16-18 in most U.S. States, don"t know about other countries.After that, ns think the age distinction of two years is OK, specifically if the maturity level is about the same.

There are, but most states have actually "close in age exemptions" because that example, in ours state period of consent is 16, however as long as both partners are older 보다 12 and also have no much more than a 4 year age gap they couldn"t it is in prosecuted.
Yep! In Alaska it"s 16; Arizona, 18; California, 18; Colorado, 17. Each state has its very own variations. Https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_consent_in_the_United_StatesIt is probably very rare than teenagers are judge of statutory rape as soon as it"s clear they are in a consensual relationship, yet I understand it"s happened and also I wanted my kids to be aware of it. I"d be searching for other red flags....possessiveness, depression, etc. The two year age distinction alone doesn"t send increase a flag for me. In ~ the exact same time, is over there a shorthand ~ above this forum because that "But i don"t desire my kids doing what i did once I was their age!" BIDWMKDWIDWIWTA, maybe? lol
