    No, I would make the age of consent for sex with an adult 16, with provisions taking the age gap into consideration.

    I think that would be bare minimum age, but I'm more inclined to say 17 just because they are close enough to age of majority and they would be most likely to be meeting younger adults(18-20).
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    As weird and twisted as it may be it all worked out for the best I suppose. Obviously the "kid" is now an adult so.... They have every right to be together now. At least he's a father and a husband and took responsibility for his actions and his kid(s).

    I agree.... I think there should be a 5 year difference rule IMO after the age of 14 or 15....

    Is it really a crime if an 18 year old kid screws a 14 or 15 year old girl????

    I don't think so. They're both kids really.

    I wouldn't recommend it but it happens , and it upsets me when an 18 or 19 year old kid goes to jail and is put on a sex offender list for having consensual sex with his 15 year old girlfriend... But it happens all too often. Of course then the kid is pegged as a sex offender (or pedophile) his entire life when all he did was screw his girlfriend that was a few years younger than he was.... Of course it works the other way and it happens to girls too but they rarely get the same treatment by the courts as guys in cases like this.

    No... this is stupid and people who voted yes should take a deep look at themselves.

    17 is the age of consent in Illinois...

    Ages of consent are a state issue. I think in some states it's as young as 14 or 15.

    IMO, I think all this is stupid. If you're old enough to have children then you're old enough to have sex (or at least be in a monogamous relationship where sex is involved).... In most cultures it's common to be a mother and married by 16.

    Now, I'm not saying I advocate it, I'm just saying its natural and certainly an anthropological fact. Of course we have our own culture, and besides I think most individuals like to stick with their own age group when it comes to relationships and sex (within 5-7) years difference, especially when you're in your 30's or 40's+...

    It's 17 here as well, with a "two year rule" to cover borderline ages and account for older/younger school romances and the like. I realize that other cultures do things differently but I have read enough on this to agree with the psychologists who say that a significant age difference between an adult and a teenager is just not a good mix, can be detrimental to the teenager in the long run.

    I agree with this..... Usually in other cultures (besides Islam) and I'm speaking of indigenous cultures in South America, Africa, Australia, or even arranged marriages in India etc the husband and wife albeit 15 or 16 are usually the same age....

    But I absolutely agree that a large age gap in ANY relationship will be a problem, if you're 17 or 35 if you're dating someone that is say 10 years older there will be problems (or even 10 years younger when you're 35)...

    Then again mental maturity is an issue too. You can be 35 and act like you're 17 and you can be 17 and act like you're 35.

    An adult has much more power and can manipulate and control a 13 year old much more than another teen can. But the age gap should be considered also. An 18 year old with a 15 year old isn't nearly as problematic as a thirty year old with a fifteen year old.

    If by 'woman' you mean adult female...then 'no'.

    The woman can keep her panties on for a few years until he is of age.

    What a weird poll question.
