17 and 19 year old dating
But a few years ago, the Oregon Court of Appeals threw another statute into the mix.
I have a co-worker with whom I'm work chums (we're not bosom buddies but we like each other at work- I'm sure you've had one).
A tree's growth rate changes in a predictable pattern throughout the year in response to seasonal climate changes, resulting in visible growth rings.
Each ring marks a complete cycle of seasons, or one year, in the tree's life.
It just so happens that, in Oregon, the punishment for sex with a 17 year old can be greater than the punishment for sex with a 14 year old.What the situation is in the US seems to rather depend on the laws of the State in question.At 15, intimacy would clearly be considered illegal." or would you think "one can't control where the heart will lead"? My husband's second wife was 17 years younger than him. I'm honestly not sure what motivates a 19 year old girl to go after a guy twice her age (it's definitely not money with this kid as judging by her car and clothes she's from a very well-to-do family). Or what I tell my kids- you worry about YOURself, and let others worry about THEMselves. Wht he is doing is very taboo among the upper echelon of college profs. It is not advisable to date students at your institution, and though I have personal objections to the age difference, in this situation it is more of a professional indecency. I'm honestly not sure what motivates a 19 year old girl to go after a guy twice her age (it's definitely not money with this kid as judging by her car and clothes she's from a very well-to-do family). Makes me wonder if this girl knows what she is doing, but hey! ;) In conclusion, this is none of our business, so let's just give a little shudder and forget about it.Though not conpletely unheard of, it does happen, but it is not a norm by any means. And it is non-of your business, but you'll probably be called upon to pick up the pieces when it falls apart. This is similar to my sister's situation and I'm pretty worried about it.
He ended a long-term relationship last year (non live-in) and I was glad when he said he'd met someone who really "did it for him"- bright, vivacious, intellectual and, I just learned when I met her- 19 years old. (He's technically a professor but he's non-teaching, so she's not ever going to be in any of his classes, so that's not an issue.) Hmmm...
