    at what age should teenagers be considered adult ?

    should a man age of 21 be charged with pedohilia and convicted of having sex with a child age of 14 15 0r 16 ?

    when should a person be considered adult ?

    my purpose in starting this thread is not to justify this action

    l just wonder why a person has to be accused of being a pedohilie although he is not sexually interested in little children

    many of the teenagers have the physical maturity to have sex and give birth although not all of them can be emotionally mature to marry and raise their babies.

    if 3 or more adults over 18 can have sex together or marry if polygamy is legalized , why is a person considered pervert pedohilie only because he had sex with a girl who is mature enough to menstruate ?

    if both of them are consent to have sex ,what is teh problem ?

    they dont seem more disturbing than polygamic lovers

    25, when the brain fully develops.

    Teenagers don't have a fully developed sense of reasoning or an ability to accurately weigh consequences for poor decisions.

    Pedophile is a term that is used to describe an adult having sex with a prepubescent child. There is a different term for a postpubscent/adult sex but I can never remember the term.

    I agree but I think that 18 across the board for sexual consent and marital consent is old enough. They have had an opportunity to finish high school by then at least.

    Because of the fact that the are going to be sexually active younger than 25 and perhaps have a resultant pregnancy, they should be allowed to marry IMO. But I would use 18 as the age because of educational purposes, as well as the maturity factor.

    Sorry Medusa, but I think people have sex with children is much more disturbing than more than two adults consenting to marriage.

    Well let me ask you this - how many people your age do you know who married at 17/18 that are still together? My guess is probably very few, if any - unless she got knocked up.

    It was common in my grandparents' days because back then, divorce was taboo and frowned upon so you stuck with the person you married, come hell or high water, even if they turned out to be a complete waste of oxygen.

    You CAN get married at 18, just like you CAN get divorced at 20. Then you're on the market as 20 and divorced. Good luck finding someone new, especially if you got a kid out of that brief mistake.

    An adult having sex with a late teen is called ephebophilia, not pedophilia.
