Question: Can a 14 year old date a 12 year old in Texas?

Is it illegal for a 14 year old to date a 14 year old?

If you are 18 and she is 14, you could be arrested and charged with serious sex crimes, even if you dont actually have sex. Thats the kind of crime that can stick with you for life.

Whats the oldest a 12 can date?

According to the law, a 12 or 13-year-old can consent to sex if the partner is less than 2 years older and not in a position of authority. Children younger than 12 years old cannot consent to any type of sexual activity. Having sex with a child younger than 12 is against the law and is sexual abuse.

Can a 14 year old date a 10 year old?

The answer is that you can date anyone your parents (and his) approve of you dating. You may not engage in sex, however, as it is not only a crime but carries very harsh penalties which likely are lifelong.

Is it OK to date a 13 year old at 15?

If dating includes sex (or any form of sexual activity) then the answer is NO - and parental approval is irrelevant. If you are under 16 then you may not lawfully engage in any sexual activity (not just intercourse) with anyone.
