    If you had done even the most cursory search on this website you would have learned that there are no laws in any state that dictate who may DATE. You may hang out at the mall, go to school events, to a baseball game, on a picnic, to the beach, wherever kids go nowadays, as long as the parents of the minor agree.

    What the law dictates is who may have sexual contact. Sexual contact is NOT limited to intercourse. The age of consent in Idaho is 18, and the law in Idaho states that if you are a legal adult (you are) and the girl is under 18 (she is) then even if she tears her clothes off, throws herself at you and begs you to have sex with her, if you do so you have committed rape.

    So you can go out with her platonically as long as her parents agree (if they say no, then it's no, and that is the end of the story). But keep your hands to yourself and your pants zipped until she is over 18 or you are in a world of hurt.

    BTW, you initially posted this question in a forum devoted to labor and employment law. I moved it to a more appropriate forum. May I suggest that you spend some time brushing up on your reading comprehension?

    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.

      What state?
      Please Note: My "warm and fuzzy" font is not working, therefor my posts will be direct and to the point.

      Thank you in advance for your anticipated understanding.

        I am guessing Idaho since this is posted in Idaho family law

          Idaho Statutory rape law is very clear

          Rape of a female under age 18.
          One year to life in prison

          Pretty cut and dry
