I posted a much more important to me question earlier (please read/respond!) But this just popped into my head, just a little something I'd like to know.
I have two friends, one is now 20 and the other is 18. They dated for about two years, and were sexually active. When the 20yo was 18 the 18yo was 16, 19/17 respectively as well. Was it breaking the law with them being sexually active? Is there a law similar to:
"under 18 is sex with a minor unless they are within x days/months/years apart in age"
for example, my GF is a month older than me, if we had had sex when she was 18 and i was 17-11/12 would that be illegal? lol
Just curious, they're all over 18 now so it's NBD
