Is it bad that a 22 year old man is having sex with a 17 year old girl?

Superb Opinion

  • Hmmm the age gap isn’t too bad. Ur at the edge of turning 18 so I can’t see why he couldn’t have waited but you’ve talked about this before so I’m not sure if you feel like your getting taken advantage of lol. I’d say If he respects what you say , in a relationship with you , and is overall loyal. Then I think it’s okayy. But he definitely should’ve waited until U were 18 lol

  • Not necessarily! Most (if not all) states have Romeo and Juliet laws that cover relationships between 16/17 year olds and people within 3-5 years of their age depending on the state. I believe Florida is a 5 year state, so 17 and 22 would be fine!

Most Helpful Guys

  • Most places it's legal some it isn't.

    ethically it depends on the maturity of the two, how they interact and whether both are happy with the arrangement or one is being taken advantage of. That's always specific not general.

  • Generally it's not a great idea but it depends on the people and the situation.

  • Where I live that is illegal

  • It’s not the perfect ideal but I think it’s probably ok. Are you ok with it?

    • Depends on where. In my home country, age of conaent is 14 so nobody would give a fuck about a 17 years old girl. Also, you think that at 18, there is a magic strike that suddenly makes it not wrong and disgusting? What if she is just 1 day before 18. At which point in time does ot get natural and okay? If people abide the laws for local age of consent and consent is given, not coerced, I think only the family, at best, has a say in it. Mind you, I am not endorsing anything here. I just want to know what is it that makes it magically okay from one day to another, because it's not that your argument sucks - you don't have any.

    • I met my future husband 2 days after I turned 18. He was 18 too. If it were a week earlier is that wrong? In my state: “It is technically legal for a 22 year old to have a sexual relationship with a 17 year old”

    • There is no technicality here. It is either legal or illegal. I am getting pretty fed up with people poking their noses in things where they have no business, acting as if they had the moral highground, while HALF OF THEM at least are just fucking jealous. And it is the hypocrisy that I am fed up with. My personal opinion is this: If somebody is old enough to legally drive, they are most likely old enough to have sex. But only after proper fucking education (pun intended). And that is a good way to people to filter out predators/coercers. And to use protection. And if somebody is not mature enough to walk into a store, to buy a pack of fucking condoms, they shouldn't be having sex either. And if somebody breaks the fucking law, however stupid it may be, then off to prison. That's it. 14 is a bit young for the age of consent in my opinion, but that's what the law says in my home country, and the best parents can do is to educate their children. Which they do, mostly. But I have a friend, who at 15, fancied 25-30 years old women. That was his taste. Was it wrong? His wife is 15 fucking years older than him.

  • Not really... at least not in the UK, pretty much legal and everything

  • Yes it is. He should wait until she is 18. Hopefully you are using a condom every time?

  • it depends on where you live but mostly it's ok when you know what you doing and it isn't harmful for you

  • It is gray area. It could be genuine interest or opportunism but it could also be a guy who is in denial of his aging. The problem with the latter is the girl almost always ends up outgrowing the guy, so it is a doomed relationship.

  • No. My first boyfriend was 30 when I was 15.

  • It's totally fine. But check the laws in your state to be safe. :)

  • Yeah it’s a felony for him.

  • I can't see why. Just watch local laws.

  • Know the laws of your country and region!

  • Well, not really, I just hope their using protection and he could get in trouble if she tells anyone cause by law she's still a minor and you know right away outsiders want run to the police and call the guy a pedo but we all knows that's not true

  • Yeah It is in my opinion

  • If you live in the UK yeah, but in the US its technically against the law

    • If you live in the UK no**

  • No...
    There is age difference of less then 5 years... It's normal.. But since she is - 18 it's illegal at many places..

  • If it’s legal in the area then it’s fine

  • No. She's pedo-peelable. :)

  • yeah thats wrong. Depending on the laws where you're at it could be illegal too

  • Yes it is.

  • Nope.
