    Dating between 16 year old and 22 year old does not violates any law.

    But if they had sex then it does violates law and the 22 year old be filed as a "Child Abuser".

    "A child is defined in Iowa Code section 232.68 as any person under the age of 18 years"

    So please do refrain from doing sexual things.

    .....Wait till "the person" turn 18, it will be a lot safer and enjoyable then ........

    Depends on the state but a 16 yo having sex with a 22 yo is probably illegal.

    I don't think that there's any laws against dating, but if someone who's over 18 has sex or does "sexual things" they can get charged for rape or something
