The 18 year old is legally an adult and the 15 year old is still considered a child, so while dating in and of itself isn't technically illegal, any sort of sexual contact is, and would put the 18 year old at risk for felony charges and jail time. Also the 18 year old and 15 year old are in very different places, mentally and physically, so while later in life 3 years isn't a big age difference, during the teen years it's a world of difference. Both of them would be much better off looking for relationships with people their own age, or at least waiting a few more years before dating.
get married :D jk, my husband and i are 4 yrs apart. I was 17 and he was 21 when we got married. if you are married, you can do whatever you want with him/her. I think you can get married about 16 in a lot of states, but you may have to have their parents permission... hope ur on their good side :)
It's not illegal but c'mon ? The 18 year old should be tryna get at adults grown women not 15 year olds -_- I'm 16 when I turn 18 I'm not gonna be hanging around my old high school trying to get at minors
Actually. MANY states have a "close age exception" to their age of consent laws; typically four years difference of less is not criminalized. New York is one. So ignore the folks just declaring a blanket "no", as they clearly know Very little about the law.
It isn't illegal. There is only a three year difference. And depending on the relationship, it's okay to be with them. Just at least get parent consent though. I'm going threw the same exact problem of my own. I am a lesbian and my parents are doing the same thing towards my girlfriend because she's 18 and i'm 15. Note i will be 16 in 3 months. At age 16, I believe you can ask for parent consent. I read an article about that it is only acceptable if you get parent consent and they are at least 16.
