  • No...it's illegal.
    • Nosmo King
      No, it isn't.
  • Are they happy? Does she know his age? Does he know her age? If they are aware of their respective ages and are happy - leave them alone. If one of them is lying, counsel that person to tell the truth. DO NOT be the one to dob - that way lies the path to the ruination of a friendship.
  • Actually it is legal. I say go man go.... Get schooled and bring it on home. Give her a go for me. Oh and (pay attention she'll teach you things if you'll let her. Like Yoda be.)
  • I guess I just assumed that was the standard for anyone under 17. I stand corrected :o)
    • Nosmo King
      You assumed? Good grief!
  • its fine. he's the man.
    • Nosmo King
      Meaning?
  • Nope,he underage.
    • Nosmo King
      He's not underage for sex.
  • In Oregon, she would be getting 7 years in prison. No doubt about it.
    • Nosmo King
      I didn't know Oregon was such a fascist dictatorship.
  • As long as it's just dating I have no problems with it. But then my relationship is a bit more unique than that so I won't bother sharing it.
  • my husband was 17 when i started to date him , i was "way" older,, so yes , i think it is cool....as long as they are of age...
  • I had a 23 yr. old GF when I was 17, so I can't say it's wrong. And, in most cases, and states, 17 is consent age for males anyhow.
  • I think that morally there is insufficient information as I personally do not tie emotional maturity and the ability to make decisions solely on the number of candles you have on your birthday cake. Legally, I come from a state which has some odd (and somewhat ambiguous) laws regarding that sort of thing.
    • dickw60
      Man's morals or God's morals? There is generally a lot of difference. In the Bible there is NO age of consent given for either males or females. The father (head of household) set the ages his children could have coitus mainly for the females. People think they know better than The Lord God in these things.
  • I dated girls that were way older than me in high school. I think it is better. I don't care if people agree but i think it is gross for a 15 year old girl top date a 21 or older guy. But it is more acceptable in society and io dont see why. Or thats how it is in maryland
  • its not illegal, he's past the age of consent and is within one year of becoming an adult.
  • Meh, I think it's ok.
  • Besides it being illegal because he's still a minor, I have no problem with that.
    • Nosmo King
      It's not illegal.
  • In my opinion, it depends on the people. The law might have something else to say, though.
    • Nosmo King
      In that case the law is a bigger ass than I'd previously thought, and I never had a very high opinion of it to begin with.
  • age shouldnt matter unless the other one is old enough to be their almost granpa or ma
  • Sounds like it is for him ;)
  • right on!
  • its fine let them be as long as they r happy with each other im 16 and my bf is 32 so i really see no problen with this it could be alot worse lol leave them be if they r happy
  • If she's hot, give him a High Five! ;)
  • Yeah. That's perfectly fine. For her anyway.
  • Well I am 24 and I am dating a 17 year old and I think he is way better than any older guy I have dated b4 and to make it even better he is very mature, he works with me and that's how we met...his dad is aware of the situation and I support him on anything he wants to do after he is done with HS...I love him and we have so much fun together we go to parties together, ice skating, movies, beach, we cook together and he still goes out with his friends and I met them all and try to be their friend too. Now I dunno if this would work as great for everyone because the maturity level on people is different !....anyways Good luck ..but I think ur friend is fine !
  • My (male) cousin married a 26 year old woman when he was 21, I believe. They're happily married and have two little girls together. However, they should be careful not to have a sexual relationship until after he's 18, and personally I recommend until after marriage - though I know few people will go with that.
  • Yeah its totally cool
  • What would be "Wrong" with it?
  • I'm 24 and I would date a 17 year old if I wasn't with someone now. I don't see the problem with it if they have a lot in common.
  • I am 17 years older than my husband and we have been happily married for 15 years. Bigotry about age is as endearing as racial hatred and sexual harrassment. What does age have to do with feelings for someone anyway?

      Sorry about the duplicate answer. This site has a habit of doing that. Lol:)
  • Is it right for who? The fact that he's in the relationship with his eyes wide open makes it none of your and my business!!!
  • i think if i had a daughter 15 years old, she wouldn't be interested in any guys lol it is wrong. and im sure this 24 year old is probly getting her into a lot of wrong things, ex: dropping out of school, sex, drinkings drugs. but that all depends. i had a few girlfriends that dated much younger guys and i thought it was very wrong, but one of my friends actually changed his life and got him away from drugs , back in school. really smartin up his life. but when it comes to the sex its wrong. i hope u find the right answer, its a hard question.
  • Yep, more power to him.
  • what's wrong?Everything should be fare in ......
    • Nosmo King
      Fare?
  • If it is right for them.
  • Yes, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Good luck to both of them, I say.
  • I don't see anything wrong with it, although I much prefer older men.
