    ok im a texan too and frankly u wouldnt go to jail! lol if you 18 y.o and the girl is 16/17 your still in school and you wouldnt be in trouble with the law. now if some weird 40 y.o pedophile were to date a person that young then yes they would go to jail lol but u dont seem like it so keep in mind bro that just cause you 18 and dating a chick younger then you by 2 years is not a crime...maybe if you were 21 or something you would be in some trouble but you not so look on the bright side of it! you can date her! :D

    The legal age in Texas to have sex is 17. So, if you are with someone younger then that you can be prosecuted for statutory rape. Once the girl is 17 then she can have sex and nobody will be able to press charges unless it's forcible rape.

  • of course not cutie, u can date any age u wanted to becuase i live in Orlando,Florida now use to live in Huntsville,alabama sorry getting off track here LOL :) but sex i dont know you can get in major trouble for if your thinking about sex you should date someone your own age but as far as dating yes sure and by the way you seem like a really sweet guy and your honest!!!!

  • Age doesn't matter. The only way an 18 year old guy could go to jail is if he published pornography of a minor, priovided alchohol or something to a minor, any of that other illegal stuff that you could go to jail for if you were 80. Your welcome!

    idk about the laws in texas but im pretty sure you wont go to jail for dating a minor unless you sleep with her. it could be considered rape or some sexual crime.
