Utah state laws on dating
One last thing thats just an opinion, and has little to do with helping your problem.
I don't even understand why this 16 year old's parents object to a three year difference.
Good Luck Honey Combs, I'm sure everything will turn out ok.
There is a reason why we read posts in their entirety before we respond to them... but I have to say, the bolded has me a bit concerned about you, because this is a similiar argument that NAMBLA uses to defend what they do/believe in.
In May 2004, the Georgia Supreme Court overturned Dixon’s conviction, stating that he should’ve been prosecuted on the lesser charge of misdemeanor statutory rape, which carries a maximum sentence of one year.
He walked out of prison on May 3, 2004, at age 19, a free man.
The Dixon case is just one in a long line of similar legal battles teens have faced in the last decade.
But if these teens are having sex, and you live in a state where prosecutors aggressively enforce the law, it’s possible that your son could be charged with statutory rape.
Take, for example, the widely publicized case of Marcus Dwayne Dixon, an 18-year-old high school honor student and star football player who had sex with a 15-year-old female classmate.
Yes, your parents can cause a lot of problems for the 19 year old. God made it where a boy and girl can fall in love, not a boy and girl above age so-and-so will fall in love.
I personlly disagree with any law resricting love because frankly, love is abstract in every thinikable way.
Your 18-year-old son is dating a 16-year-old female classmate – no big deal, right?
