Dating new age people
With some quick math, the rule provides a minimum and maximum partner age based on your actual age that, if you choose to follow it, you can use to guide your dating decisions.
The utility of this equation is that it lets you chart acceptable age discrepancies that adjust over the years. Let's examine it: How well does the rule reflect scientific evidence for age preferences?
Limits governing sexual contact between two minors vary from allowing two to four years' difference.
Some states, including Michigan and Georgia, set a definite age of consent.
The age of consent -- the age at which a person can legally give consent to a sexual partner -- varies from 14 to 18. for an adult -- 18 or older -- to have sexual contact with someone younger than 16.
All states which place the age of consent younger than 16 years of age have provisions that differentiate between an adult sexual partner and a minor sexual partner. Some states consider the age difference between a teen and her sexual partner, both in determining whether a law has been broken and in determining how severe the charges should be.
When your teen wants to date someone significantly older or younger, dating becomes especially complicated.
