Thankyou for your opinion, I respect it. You say you think that when you see older girls with teenage boys, but I’m still 18 but 19 soon and I only look about 17 and I am still a teenager-id bet that if people saw us together we’d look the same age if not me looking younger than him.

The dilemma I have a year-old daughter who I believe is in a relationship with a year-old man. It’s been going on since she was around 17, when she began babysitting for his children.

In England and Wales the age of sexual consent is 16 for both men and women. The age of consent is the same regardless of the gender or sexual orientation of a person and whether the sexual activity is between people of the same or different gender. Children aged 12 and under are legally considered to be incapable of giving consent to any form of sexual activity.
There is a maximum sentence of life imprisonment for rape, assault by penetration, and causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity. This law has applied since the Sexual Offences Amendment Act came into force in January , and applies even if the relationship is consensual.
