I am the mother of two sons, one 15 and the
other one is 17.
It is my 17 year old that I am writing about.
He has been dating this girl for the last two
and a half years. She just turned 16 years old
in Sept of this year. My son will be 18 in March
of 2005. My question is if they were to have
sex after my son (they are not sexually active
right now) turns 18 could he be charged with
My husband and I are having trouble understanding
this. Some people say that since they are less
than 3 years apart in age that no he can't. I
have found in reading some articles that the
consenting age for sex in Texas is 17.
Can you please help me out with this?
