Im 17 dating 14
It is worth pushing pause on your anger and emotions and considering whether your parents may be right.
They have the advantage of perspective…they realize over 90% of high school dating ends up not working out.
The more people I talked to, nobody wanted us together. Chances are, your parents have more wisdom than you do and it’s a good idea to take their advice. It only shows them you are too immature to be in the relationship they are so worried about.The fact of the matter is, most people spend very little time researching and getting to know the other person before they start dating them, they just jump into the relationship. They have fears of unwanted pregnancy, date rape, drug use, physical abuse, or simply having their children get a needless and unnecessary broken heart.Carolyn commented that her response to her parents’ dislike of her boyfriend was to ask other people what they thought.Regardless, if it's been working for 2 years and there's nothing illegal involved (like sex) that could ruin either of your lives, I don't see a problem.A reader asked me what the age of consent is in Texas. Let me begin by stating there is no section of the Texas Penal Code that defines “age of consent.” Rather, you have to begin in the Sexual Assault Provisions of the TPC. Doesn’t that make many high school students felons? Texas has a “Romeo and Juliet” affirmative defense for minors who are within 3 years of age.
