Minor dating an adult law Chatral kelsh
There are no "dating" laws in Maryland and likely not in any other state either.
This is a common confusion with age of consent laws, which govern ages a person is considered capable of consenting to sexual acts.
If two people arrange to see each other on a particular date, they are dating.
If they want to have dinner together, that is always legal, for anybody of any age.
If you mean having sexual intercourse, it is against the law.
Beyond those two exceptions, if both parties are 16 and over, they may do as they wish.
It also means that if either person is under 16 and both people who are within 4 years of each other, they are exempt from these laws (the idea behind that is the "older" person is also very young and doesn't know any better than the younger person) Yes, there are no laws against dating but as minors your parents have to be OK with it of course.
