Is it legal in Texas for 2 males to date When one is a minor and the other is an adult?

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.

  1. 2 guy should never date

  2. I don’t think most people would even notice or care.

  3. i guess nambla couldn’t answer it

  4. Anyone over the age of 18 who dates someone younger than 18 is at risk for being charged with statutory rape. How likely you are to be charged depends on your state, but Texas is pretty conservative. Even if you were a hetero couple, I would discourage it until your date is over the legal age of majority — unless you have explicit permission from the minor’s parents to date. And even then, you are at risk if you start having sex with the minor and the parents get upset.

  5. I didn’t even know it was legal in Texas for two males to date at all. lol.
