18 yr old dating a 15 yr old
, refers to the age at which a young person can legally consent to sexual activity.
All sexual activity without consent, regardless of age, is a criminal offence.
Sexual activity can also be considered exploitative based on the nature and circumstances of the relationship, e.g., the young person’s age, the age difference between the young person and their partner, how the relationship developed (quickly, secretly, or over the Internet) and how the partner may have controlled or influenced the young person.

It is never okay for any person to have sex with another person who is under 12.
In the US, I believe he will be labeled as a sexual predator. My brother was 18 when he starting seeing his first wife when she was 15. People on here post about how they don't treat their daughters like princesses or they don't like women who ARE princesses - well assuming every guy interested in your daughter is exactly the attitude that gives women THAT princess like attitude. And this talk about " oh she's mature of her age look at the way she acts and dresses blah blah blah" is a load of crap, Just because a girl knows how to act like a grown woman doesn't mean she ready to do what a grown woman does, she's 15 FFS.
I wish men would stop complaining about the way women act and then go home and treat their daughters with exactly the same traits that makes them into the women they complain about all the time. I have buddies that has daughters that age and God helps the jerk off at 19 who thinks about asking their daughters out, they are treading where angels fear to go. I must say though, one of the first posters who posted that she would report her son and his girlfriend to the police if they were to have sexual relations with a 1 year age gap is amusing.
