Age of consent in texas, romeo and juliet laws?

I am a 15 year old girl and my girlfriend is 19. I'm about to be 16. I know the age of consent in Texas is 17 but is there any loopholes? I know the Romeo and juliet laws are mainly directed towards heterosexuals. Would there be any way not to get punished if I'm 16 and she's 19, and it's consentual? show more I am a 15 year old girl and my girlfriend is 19. I'm about to be 16.

Update: The age of consent is 17. People under that age may have sex with people who have NOT MORE than a 3-year age difference, for instance 16-19.
Is that true?
