I don't know the TX law in particular, but in most sections of the country a person under the age of 18 cannot legally consent. The parents of the girl can press charges. As a former employee of a state prison I saw this many times.

Go to Barnes and Nobles, Borders Books, etc. and buy a U.S. Almanac.

Turn to the section on Marriage and State Requirements.

Different states have different ages for getting married. Yes, the last reader is correct, it's 18 for alot of states but not all. I remember Mississippi being the earliest age without parents consent. I don't know what Texas is.

Get a 2008 or 2009 Almanac.

There are two seperate issues here.

Issue one: Can a 17 year old consent to sex with an adult? Yes he or she can

Issue two: This is very important. If either or both parents of the 17 year old forbid the realtionship then its over! Parents have 100% control over whom their minor child associates with. In other words Mom and or Dad can seek a protective order forbidding contact with their minor child. If the adult violates this order he/she can go to jail.

Moral of the story: Do what Mom and Dad say!

I agree and have seen a lot of kids get in trouble over this issue.

Too bad you goofy people obviously don't know the Texas laws which state that you're an adult at 17. Being 17, and from Texas I know this as a fact.

age of consent is 17

age of majority is 18

but some odd rules allow 17 year olds to move out in some cases if they are able to support themselves

the person is NOT an adult at 17 in Texas

REALLY IM A LAWYER IN TEXAS... SO YOUR TELLING ME THAT YOUR 17 AND CONSIDER YOURSELF AN ADULT WHO CAN DO WHAT YOU WANT...HMMM I SEEM TO REMEMBER THAT YOUR PARENTS ARE STILL RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS UNTIL 18 YEARS OLD UNLESS YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN SUPPORTING YOURSELF AND FILING YOUR OWN TAXES AT THE AGE OF 16 .. PERHAPS MSS. GROWN UP YOU SHOULD LOOK UP THE LAW AS WELL AS THE FOOT NOTES AND EXCEPTIONS IT CARRIES...JUST BECAUSE YOU THINK YOU KNOW EVERYTHING AND ONLY GET 1/2 THE INFO DOESNT MAKE YOU SMART UNTIL YOU DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH
