quick questions, just so i understand the age of consent law and the SR laws

Q1. Is there a 3/4 year "safe-zone" spread?(i really don't know what to call it). If so how wide is that spread? 3 or 4 years?
example 1:
I'm 19, and my girlfriend turns 17 before i turn 20. Would this be considered under a four/three year "save-zone"?

If there isn't such thing, then don't bother answering my next question and example.

Q2. If there is such law/term, does it only apply up to up the other older party's age is 20 and under, but if above 21 it would be consider SR?
example 2:
I'm 21 and my girlfriend just turned 17. Though it may be in a 4 year spread, i am 21. Would that be considered SR?
Correct

Well, might I add that [high school] is telling us 16 is the age of consent.

if you look really closely, the age of consent is MARRIED,

18.2-344. Fornication.

Any person, not being married, who voluntarily shall have sexual intercourse with any other person, shall be guilty of fornication, punishable as a Class 4 misdemeanor.

My daughter is 16, her bf turned 22 in January. We just found out she is pregnant. We are in shock and want to know what the law in the state of VA is regarding this type of situation. We want him held legally responsible for child support, should the need arise and he flakes out on my daughter. If we have to hold the law over his head to finally make him mature and act like the man he is supposed to be then so be it. But I need to know what the law is first.

Thank you for your help! Just want to make sure the right things are done for the innocent in this situation.

I have a few questions pertaining to a government project I am working on and they are;

. What are the laws pertaining to a relationship (non-sexual) between a 15 yr old female and a 19 yr old male?

. How do the laws pertain to a situation like this if it were a 15 yr old male and a 19 yr old female?

. What are the laws pertaining to a relationship between an 18 yr old male and a 17 yr old female?

. How do the laws pertain to a situation like this if it were a 17 yr old male and an 18 yr old female?

The laws I have been trying to read through are quite confusing and there are so many varied opinions on what they mean that it is difficult to determine a correct answer. Thanks :)

according to the commonwealth attorney the legal age is 15 and it doesnt matter how old the consenting adult is... my daughter was 15 and got pregnant to a 20 yr old and the state of virginia refused to charge him with anything..

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.
thank you

The age of consent deals with sexual acts, not dating, so yes, you can date. The law gives a person 15+ the right to consent to sex with someone less than three years older than they are, which means you are close, but 3 days too far apart, if you were planning on sex.

my opinion is that unless you know for a fact that you are going to marry the individual as soon as legally possible sex should not even be considered.
me and my gf only had sex after we determined that we truly loved eachother and then we told her mom about the decision. her mother is cool with it.
