would i get in some kind of trouble with the laws if they dont accept our relationship. i just got a real good job and scared to lose it over that. We arent having sexual intercourse and we do really care about each other. And BTW- if anyone- your parents, teacher, friend, police, etc. For this purpose, a minor DOES NOT include a 17-year-old. In Texas, any person under 18 is a minor for ALL purposes.
(is it unlawful if we me and her have sex)***TEXAS LAW*** There are no laws restricting age limits on dating. were to claim that there has been sexual contact- even "petting" , they will be believed and your BF will end up like my son and hundreds of others. Being able to consent to having sex does not change their minor status. In Texas, any person under 18 is a minor for ALL purposes.
Also, the "unwritten" law for the age of consent for deviate sexual intercourse or sexual contact is 17, making your girlfriend "of age" and competence to make any such decision. It is VERY written, and is available all over the net.
You might encounter one problem - if your girlfriend's parents dissapprove of the relationship, there is nothing you and your girlfriend can do. What you are missing is that regardless of the age of consent, her parents still have the final say on whom she can see, talk and date.
I started dating this girl that is 17 years old and well am a lil concern about her age.
