I heard that in Canada, its not necessarily illegal to have sex with anyone 4 years older but its also not necessarily legal either. I understand that at 16 you're a minor but if a 16 year old can date a 20 year old with consent to sex then how is it illegal to date an 18 year old, im rather confused atm. i understand the law is changing constantly just wondering, also I was told the other day that Lorde the singer is dating a 24 year old and she is only 17, how is that legal?

famus people can get away with a lot more than regular people because it creates publicity.
I thought the law was if the age difference is no grater than 2 years it's not illegal, it may have been changed to 4 after I was 18 ish. I heard it referred to as the "romeo and juliette" law. which makes sense because if person A was 16 and B was 17 sure it's legal but the minute B turns 18 they are still alloud to date because it's not like they will take a 2-3 year break and get back togther.
the thing about Canada is we tend to change laws every so often, it's okay but the change should be locked in for a min of say 2 years or something.
are you sure it's a min and max of 4 years or is it anything 4 years and younger?0
