Is it okay for a 15 year old to go out with a 18 year old

So my Friend is 15 and she has been talking to a 17 year old (turning 18 soon) they have been friends for three years and now they are talking about dating. He promised her they'd take it slow but we are concerned about the age difference. He is really friendly, they get along really well, he has a full time job and will be going to uni in 2015. If this was your friend could you be concerned about the age difference.

No that is not ok. At age 18 you can go to jail for being with some one who is that young. Someone 18 years old should be with their own age.. ..They should have absolutely nothing to do with a 15 year old girl. . All that is leading them to is behind bars and into a lottt of trouble!

It will depend who you talk to and the two people who are dating's reputations. Sure they can date, but will others approve...

No, actually it is illegal. At 18 he's an adult while she 's a minor. The offense, what it's called & the punishment it brings varies by state. In some states it's rape, others it's corrupting a minor, etc,

As long as the person under 18 has parents approval to date 18+. If you do have parents approval, it honestly is not a big deal.
