I'll tell you what. The difference in maturity and reliability between a girl who is 16 and 19 is pretty significant. The difference between 19 and 25 is lightyears. You don't have the means to pursue a serious relationship so it really can't progress past bf/gf. Once you go off to college it will be very difficult to maintain at all. Now...all that is open to debate and opinion but here is what's not. In most states (I'm in California) you can be arrested for a felony if you have sex with her. It's that simple. It doesn't matter what her parents say, how mature you think she is, or how cool she seems. Statistically the chance of a 16/19 year old relationship working long term is slim. If she's really worth the wait then do that...wait until she's 18. Age IS NOT just a number. It is a legally defined point where certain rights, responsibilities, and crimes are defined by.
Women can turn on a dime and a teenage girl even more so. She gets mad, pregnant, or the wrong person figures out what's going on and you can find yourself in a world of trouble. I work in the legal field and spend plenty of time in a criminal court as does my fiancée. She and I would tell you we've each met young, good men who's biggest mistake in life was having sex with the underage girl. Lots of them wind up in jail, on probation, or registered sex offenders. ( They call them 'jailbait' for a reason you know.) I know how enticing a pretty young girl is but is the juice really worth the squeeze on this one? Legally, she's still a girl (no matter how 'womanly' her body may appear) and you're a man and trust me when I say the law will treat you like one. Cowboy up and make a mans choice. There are plenty of 18+ year old women available out there.0
