  • if the legal age of consent is 16 then by law you are old enough to say yes to sex. so as long as you were 16 when you got pregnant he should be fine.

  • Were you sixteen when you got pregnant, or still fifteen? Was he seventeen when he got you pregnant, or eighteen already?

  • He WILL NOT get in trouble with the law if you were 16 when he got you pregnant. That is DEFINITIVE per your state's age of consent.

    HOWEVER... if you were UNDER 16 when you got pregnant, he CAN get in trouble. That too is definitive.

    Beyond that... he's probably in a heap of trouble from your parents. I know with my dad the age of consent wouldn't have mattered; there would have been nothing left of the boyfriend to get in trouble with anyone else and probably very little left for the boy's parents to bury!

  • Why are you scared he will get in trouble? Do your parents know and accept him?

  • I agree it depends on how old you were when you got pregnant, or if your parents want to press charges against him.
