This is to take in consideration that sometimes 17 yr olds do know 18 and 19 yr olds an date.In practice, a 18 yr old going to high school and dating a 17 yr old is very unlikely to get in trouble with the law even if the couple is sexually intimate.
Although many encounters don’t involve sex, this prostitution of Japan’s youth has been cause for serious concern.
My question involves juvenile law in the State of: California I am 17. I was hoping someone could show me where, or if, or quote, where it says in California Law, that dating an adult is legal (i think after the age of 16?
) , as long as there is no sex, contributing to the delinquency, etc. No, no one can show you that, because there is no such law. What the law addresses is who may or may not have sexual contact.
But you're not going to find a law that gives you permission to date someone of any particular age.
However, since you are still a minor, while the law is not going to either give or refuse you permission to have non-sexual contact with anyone of any age, the law is going to allow your parents to decide who you can and cannot date. It doesn't make any difference if the law does not prohibit it - if your parents prohibit it, then it is prohibited, and the law, if requested to get involved, will back up your parents.
