Is it legal in the state of Texas if a 16-year-old male who dates another male is 18-years-old? I think it Would be fine as long as no sex is Involved, legal order is just dating? No homophobic comments, please. This is just a question about the law. I read somewhere about Romeo and juliet laws, purpose does this apply to two people of the same sex? Also, what is fine and what is regarded illegal in Texas Regarding this issue? Thanks.
