adult (age 18) dating minor (age 15) in utah, is it legal?

My boyfriend and I have beens dating for almost 3 months now. I’m 15 and he’s 17. He’ll be turning 18 in a month and we’re wondering if it is legal for us to keep dating in the state of Utah. My mom Approves of him but I do not know if That makes a differnce or not. Thanks for your help.


  1. dating or having sex? Dating yes, but sex, no. Beside you being too young, it is against the law for him to be having sex with you. It’s call statutory rape and it doesn’t matter if you give consent. It is still against the law. Would he go to jail? Probably not; especially if your mom approves of him.

  2. I am 70 years old and I take my Grandaughter on dates all the time, she is now 8 years old. the problem is not dating, that is legal. what you do on a date might not be.

  3. As a rule in most states you could be charged with contributed to the delinks of a minor. not that you would if dating is all that your doing

  4. Dating is legal. ANY Sexual contact is illegal. Sure your mother approving of him may help in that someone would have to bring about charges if there was sexual contact, but it would STILL be illegal even without the charges.

  5. I thought you have to be at least 58 in Utah before you are allowed the privilege of dating a 15 year old.
