Ohio laws on dating a minor
Since this comes up at least several times per day, I have decided to write a book on the subject. Once you have had sex with them, they can report it and you are in big trouble. Parents cannot give consent for their minor child to have sex with an adult. It does not matter if the minor "seduced" you, or if you thought he/she seduced you. For your own safety, and to avoid corrupting a CHILD, please seek out relationships with other adults. If this is too confusing, PM me and I will try to be more clear. I'm sorry that you feel that way, but we are in love. We are not going to have sex; it is against our convictions and beliefs.
Even if you say you are not going to have sex, you may end up doing it anyway. Minors are immature and that is why they are not legal adults. You can also wait for the minor child to reach legal age.
And if you get married prior to reaching 18, the court may be more likely to emancipate you.But unlike in many other states, there is no legal process by which a minor may petition the court to become emancipated.Minors (those under the age of 18) must prove that they can assume adult responsibilities and financially support themselves, but there must be some act or ommission on the part of the parents.It is the job of parents in this endeavor to be informed about laws that could affect the choices that they help their young people make to ensure that their first experiences with dating are positive and safe.In general, minors are considered to be people who are under 18 years of age; at 18, people assume most adult legal rights except for the purchase of alcoholic beverages.
