I'm really confused too...I mean my bf is 18 and I'm 15 and I was wondering if we'd get into any trouble. What is the real age of consent?

Virginia is really tricky, being a Commonwealth versus a State. The legal age of consent is 18, however, under certain conditions 16 with parental permission.

My questions is..What would someone 22 yrs. of age have in common with a 16 year old...SEX..that's it.

Regardless as how mature you may think you are,your boyfriend should show some maturity and wait until your old enough.

What does this guy do ?
Does he go to college ?
Does he have his own place ?
Does he have a job (other than a fast food restaurant)?
Does he have any kids ?

You are 16 you should be focusing on school and high school dances.Don't get yourself involved in something that will cost later on.You have plenty of time for sex.Don't make the mistake of defining your life by men and sex.

Good luck in school (:

There's always a cock-blocker around like carman. As long as it's just a misdemeanor, have at it. Just don't tell on the guy if you break up. An older guy (22 or 24 is not old) is usually smarter about not getting you pregnant anyway.

Obviously you lack maturity.
As long as it's a misdemeanor ?
22 and 24 is a big difference in maturity.

Also you are wrong about an older guy getting a younger girl pregnant. Many older guys get teens pregnant. They are not interested in the girls future..they are interested in sex.

You are not even worthy of someone your age. You lack intelligence and you suffer from stupidty.

If and when you have a daughter..is it alright for her to have sex with someone that's older mentally and physically ?

You are stuck on stupid

Question, I have a son who just turned 19 who met a 17 year old (both are graduating from HS this year)(Northern VA). They have not had sex yet, they just began talking about two days ago. Her parents are ok with then dating if that is what they choice. My son thinks she is a nice girl, etc however he is not sure what the VA law dictates. What advise would you give.

*if you have anything derrogatory to say please keep it to yourself. thanks.

What is the Age of Consent for Sex in Virginia?

In Virginia, the age of consent is 18 years old. At that age, a person may legally consent to sex with any other adult, regardless of the age difference between them.

This law only applies to heterosexual conduct. Virginia, likely in response to a recent Supreme Court ruling, has repealed its laws governing homosexual conduct. It currently has no statutory age of consent for homosexual conduct. It is probably safe to assume that the age of consent for homosexual conduct in Virginia is also 18, but this is not a sure thing.

Like most other states, Virginia makes allowances for cases in which two minors are below the age of consent, but close to the same age. The law recognizes that such relationships are not exploitative, and are therefore not what age of consent laws are designed to prevent. In Virginia, a person over the age of 15 can consent to sex with another person who is no more than 3 years older.

For minors between the ages of 13 and 15, Virginia is also fairly lenient. If a person less than 3 years older has sex with a minor aged between 13 and 15, the punishment is a moderate fine, with no possibility of jail time.

Hope this is useful information.

Yes,but I would strongly encourage them leave the sex out of their relationship.
Just because it's legal doesn't make it in the best interest. They need to focus on life skills. They have time for sex after they have figured out how to maintain and contribute a quality living to society.

I agree, but unfortunately I'm just determining the extent of the trouble he's in. Thanks for the info.

um sorry guys but the consent is 16, i checked and my friend checked! besides i think you should ask your parents for permission and let them meet the guy so they know if he's a good guy! i did that with my mom and it has worked like a charm! my bf is 19 and i'm 16 by the way

Your mother is incorrect. The law is 15 providing the consenting individual is not more 3 years their senior.
Like most other states, Virginia makes allowances for cases in which two minors are below the age of consent, but close to the same age. The law recognizes that such relationships are not exploitative, and are therefore not what age of consent laws are designed to prevent. In Virginia, a person over the age of 15 can consent to sex with another person who is no more than 3 years older.

I had a case such as that two years ago where I had to witness in court. The law states 15 unless there is unsual circumstances (Mentally chanllenge and disabilty law).
