    There is no law in any state that says who may DATE. You may, IF YOUR PARENTS AGREE, hang out at the mall, go to school events or a movie, do homework together, whatever it is that kids do today (even my own kids have not been teenagers for several years).

    However, if your parents say no, then it's no. Your parents may not make legal what is illegal, but they can make illegal what is legal. If they say no, you may not date him, there is nothing in the law that is going to force them to change their minds.

    You are under the age of consent so yes, it is illegal for you to have sex.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
