Legal Babysitting Age by State 2021
The only thing I can find pertaining to age of consent in actual legal text Not Hearsay is that it is unlawful to have sex with someone under 18 who is a virgin and 16 otherwise. Does any one have any legal document links showing more to this law And where they can be found in the state law. I ask because I am over 18 and the person I am romantically involved with is 16, we are not having any sexual relationship, but we may seek to in a year or so. I would like actual legal references not links to websites, I can Google too. I am looking for anything contrary to what I have.
The legal age at which one is deemed capable of agreeing to sexual activities ranges from 11 to 21 years in different countries around the world. Some nations, however, do not have a specified age of consent as they forbid sexual relations outside of marriage. Nigeria, an African nation, has the lowest age of consent in the world while Bahrain, a country in Asia, has the highest legal age of consent. The legal age at which a person can agree to a sexual relationship in Nigeria is 11 years. This consensual age is the lowest across the globe.
