Dating age laws in connecticut
And how many juries are not going to think a 23 year old is taking advantage of a 17 year old?Not saying it's right, but a real possibility. Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor is legally defined as assisting a minor in committing a crime.Girls your age will likely think you're a creep if they ever find out. I would not be okay with either of my kids dating someone six years older than them while they are that young. If there was only two or three years I would say it was not a big deal. I would worry about her being taken advantage of, even if your intentions were pure.Her parents will probably be salivating for you to misstep (sending nudes, etc). If they were adults who were established in thier lives then six years would not seem so bad. The relationship is never going to be equal because you are in a place where you are an adult who has automny over your own life. You likely have a job and can do things for yourself and need to do things for yourself.It has now been more than a year since then, we recently moved in together and things couldn't be better etc. So a big age gap isn't automatically a disaster.Having said that, a lot of things happens/changes between the age of 16 and 18.
q=nj age of consent Yeah most have misinformation on the age of consent and romeo and Juliet laws for NJ.My question is, as a 22 year old male living in Connecticut, where the age of consent 16, am I LEGALLY allowed to pursue a relationship with this girl. Would also be interested to hear opinions on whether or not morally it's okay. We have a lot in common and I am not pursuing this for sex, we couldn't have hit it off any better. That's what an age of consent of 16 years old means, yes.As for advice, that's a pretty big age & maturity gap. She & her friends will want you to buy alcohol for them. I'm your age, and if I heard someone my age was dating a sophmore in high school, I'd be very creeped out. Its apparently legal in your state, but its going to be a huge hassle. Let me put it this way, I am a parent tor two daughters (they are only 3.5 and 2, so not dating any time soon).16 is the age of consent in NJ but the law also has provisions for anyone who is in a "supervisory or disciplinarian" position over the 16 or even 17 year old. Apparently 16 is the age of consent, but also if the person is 13, they can be within 4 years and it's still legal.These provisions are to protect naive kids from predatory teachers or police officers who could threaten to put the kid in jail or not allow them to graduate with their friends if they deny the advances of the person with some type of control over them. So a 13 year old can have sex with a 17 year old and it's fine.
Everything you say would equally apply to an 18 year old girl, or even a 20 year old girl, or even a 47 year old woman.
