Have an opinion?
You meant as in to have sex with them? If the legal age of consent is 16 in Massachusetts then it should be fine.Section 23 of Chapter 265 of the General Laws of Massachusetts states:"Whoever unlawfully has sexual intercourse or unnatural sexual intercourse, and abuses a child under sixteen years of age shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for life or for any term of years or, except as otherwise provided, for any term in a jail or house of correction. A prosecution commenced under this section shall neither be continued without a finding nor placed on file." MGL 265-23Section 35A of Chapter 272 states:"Whoever commits any unnatural and lascivious act with a child under the age of sixteen shall be punished by a fine of not less than one hundred dollars nor more than one thousand dollars or by imprisonment in the state prison for not more than five years or in jail or the house of correction for not more than two and one half years, and whoever over the age of eighteen commits a second or subsequent such offence shall be sentenced to imprisonment in the state prison for a term of not less than five years."However, Chapter 272, Section 4 sets another age of consent at 18 when the "victim" is "of chaste life" and the perpetrator induces them."Whoever induces any person under 18 years of age of chaste life to have unlawful sexual intercourse shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for not more than three years or in a jail or house of correction for not more than two and one-half years or by a fine of not more than $1,000 or by both such fine and imprisonment." MGL 272-4
Regardless of legal age, a 17 year old is, what, a junior in high school? While he’s approaching 30. It’s incredibly wrong, and he’s taking advantage of you, I guarantee it. No adult in his right mind would go out with a kid. In ten-fifteen years, you’ll agree as well. I’m sorry.
I already graduated school.
At 17 O. o?
So you’re 17 in 2018, but graduated last summer? Whaaat?
I'm 18 in like a few months... yes, I graduated May of last year of Highschool. I am in the U. S for college rn..
OHHHH are you originally from the UK
Germany. But, I bounced literally all over Europe during Schooling loll fml
Oh haha that makes more sense But yeah, please stay away from the 27 year old man. No grown man in his right mind sees 17 as a valid age for dating.
depends on your definition of 'wrong,' i guess. I think if it's just for mutual physical pleasure, and both are considered consenting adults in the region, that's fine. But if either are leading the other to think they are interested in anything beyond their body, that's can be 'wrong'.
Is it wrong? YES. Depending on the age of consent. Now when you're responsible you turn down that man til you're a consenting adult or if you have consent you do your thing. Depends where you are. Socially people date up so fuck everyone who has a problem.
not in my book... as long as the 17 yo is mature enough and knows what she is getting into. Parents have issues though... sigh.I dated a many over 10 years older than me when i was 16yo. Legal age in Georgia is 16yo.
Maturity is honestly the most important thing. But as a parent I don’t care you’re not dating them lol.. especially my daughters. Oh heeeeeeell no lol. Your new boyfriend ganna catch these hands lol
loll aw thanks.
Any *ssh*le can say the girl is very mature and the girl will be happy to believe him.
I am dating a guy ten years older than me too I'm going to be 18 in a couple of days So I don't see it as something wrong, even though our age gap is pretty big
The thing is in Germany you can have Sex at age 14 on but you can't have a partner over 18 if you are under 18. I don't know how the law is on your place but I would wait till 18 to be safe
yeah. I am actually from Germany.. but, I am in the states for School.
but yeahh.. anyways thanks!
No, I don't think it's wrong. It may seem like a big difference now, but when that 17 year old is 67, and the 27 year old is 77, they won't care about that ten-year gap.
If it's legal it's legal, but it is still questionable. An adult dating someone not an adult is boderline predatory.
Hey neighbor, I live in Mass too lol. I guess legally it's not wrong, but it will morally upset some people, I'm sure.
I don't think it's wrong. As long as they are both ok with it
Just because it's legal doesn't mean it's ok. No, this is wrong and the 27 year old knows it.
but. I'll be 18 in like 3 months.. does that make it less awkward.. or is it still wrong?
it's still wrong because of the age gap, not legality.
Regardless of legality this is fucked up.
even tho I will 18 in a few months? so then it will legal pretty much world wide.. or do you just find the gap fucked?
I find the gap fucked up. I literally said that legality didn't matter.
lolll k good for you
Yeah, pretty fucking weird
A decade age difference is a lot at that age, in my opinion.
id enjoy young skin while you can.
Not in Massachusetts apparently.
Whoa. That's a bit much in my opinion
Different stages in life, makes me uncomfortable
So, not ilegal but stupid
Just my opinion. Don't waste your youth with an old man. Enjoy the youth, you will have plenty of time for "mature" relationships
i agree. I don't know why women rush to be in older relationships when young when its all they will have available when older. men dont date older, typically.
@UnaKaizen I just don't find younger people attractive. I don't ever think I will ever find someone younger or around my age attractive. I like older man, I always have since I was like small... I always wanted to have an older guy.. so "missing out" on younger men don't seem to bother me.. because I never seemed to like guys in there teens or early 20s..
its really your call, i am just big on experiencing things while you can before deciding its not for you :)
@UnaKaizen yeahh. I feel. Thanks <3
its your life. its legal. live your dream :)
As long as it's legal it's fine.
The difference is too big, indeed
If it's legal, go for it
Yes it is
No. It's hot
