Well, in some states then technically both of you have broken the law.But jaywalking is also against the law and people do that all the time.
Isn’t it sort of stupid for a law to determine how old I have to be to consent to sex? Everyone matures at different ages; some 16-year-olds are more mature than 20-year-olds and are able to make smarter decisions about sex than their elders, that’s true.Seriously, no matter how mature you are, that person is still a “grown up” (for lack of a better term) who is in a position of power over you, the student/teen. Hell, by the time you’re in 10th grade, the 7th graders all seem so tiny, right?Honestly, your teacher, coach, whatever should know better than to engage in a relationship with you if you’re underage. If one of your underage friends is in a relationship with a teacher, please tell someone. Now multiply that and you’ll get a better idea of the weirdness.If you’re 15 and dating someone who is 25, however, you’re also at very different stages of life.A 23 year old would be out of college trying to live their life.
