Question: Can a 16 year old date a 12 year old in California?

Can a 16 year old date a 13 year old in California?

It is not legal. If the 16 year old engages in any sexual conduct, they could face statutory rape charges and the parental consent assuming there was any would have no bearing on that.

Can a 12 year old date a 17 year old in California?

Dating is not illegal as its only a status and not an action. But the 17 year old would basically be daring and begging people to arrest him and face charges if he actually decided to date a 12 year old. So no a 12 year old should not be dating a 17 year old.

When can you date a 16 year old California?

Such laws generally allow someone over 14 to consent to sex, but only with someone who is no more than three years older. California does not have a Romeo and Juliet law. In California, it is illegal for anyone to engage in sex with a minor. Even another minor. There is no age of consent in California.

Is it weird to have a girlfriend at 12?

There is no law about when you are old enough to have a girlfriend or boyfriend, unlike the age of consent. You need to know your child well, because some children may be ready for a relationship at 12 but another not until they are 17.
