How old were you when you met DH? How old were you when you married? Kind of a confession.

We met when I was 18 and he was 22.  We married one month after we started dating.  Met in June, started dating in August, got married in September (two weeks before I turned 19).

We've been happily married for 9 years.

You'd be surprised. 18 isn't the cut off age in the majority of states. There's a "close in age" law in almost every state, saying what is and isn't statutory. It prevents a 19 year old from going to jail for having sex with a 16 year old and having to live with the title of a sex offender. And the police were involved for a different reason and happened to notice it and questioned it because they too, like so many others, assume 18 is the cut off age. And I don't care what society thinks. Some people didn't think twice about it. Some people thought it was weird. We have the same age difference that my parents have and they were married for over 20 years.

I'm happy, he's happy, we haven't hurt anything, and I'm a hundred times better off than I would be if we wouldn't have met.

Quoting Anonymous:

It is in mine. Sex with a minor is illegal.

It may be legal in your State, but If police were involve then it was not the norm and society condemn it



Quoting Anonymous:

It was NOT illegal for us to have sex in my state. The police TRIED to arrest him and charge him, but they couldn't because we weren't doing anything illegal,


Quoting Anonymous:

Parental consent for marriage, yesss.... That would be fine, I suppose.



But, Parental consent before or after sex? I do not believe OP wait until she got married to have sex





Quoting Ber-Lynn:

Quoting Anonymous:





Not when parents give consent for marriage.
