Dating laws in washington


At this age, a person can consent to sex with any adult, regardless of the age difference between them.

Washington’s age of consent laws apply to both heterosexual and homosexual conduct.

While some may find it questionable that any 11-year-old is mature enough to give genuine consent to sex (which necessarily requires a certain level of emotional maturity, and a reasonable understanding of the possible consequences), Washington allows this legally.

I've been reading up on laws and I'm just confused about the age of consent and how far that holds up.

And even if you weren't yet 16, you can still date anyone you want as long as you don't engage in any sexual activity.

Therefore, your boyfriend can be 60 years old for all the law cares and you can still have sex with him.

The most recent report, Out of Sight – Out of Mind?

, which surveyed advocates and service providers in 50 of the largest U. cities, found that 86 percent of the cities surveyed had laws that prohibited or restricted begging, while 73 percent prohibited or restricted sleeping and/or camping.

Minors who are 12 to 13 years old can consent to sex with someone who is 3 years older or less.

And lastly, minors aged 14 or 15 can consent to sex with a person who is 4 years older or less.

However, if you guys do anything hotter than a kiss on the cheek and you are under 16, he goes to jail. I knew sex was out of the question until I'm 18, but you said if it's anything hotter than a kiss on the cheek when I'm under 16 then he can go to jail. unless your parents take out an order against your boyfriend.
