Question: Is a 16 year old dating a 18 legal in Florida?

In Florida, it is illegal for an adult (someone 18 or older) to have sex with a minor (someone younger than 18), even if the sex is consensual. Those who break the law have committed statutory rape.

Can a 16 year old date an 18 year old in Florida?

In Florida, the age of consent is 18 years old. This allows a minor who is age 16 or 17 to legally consent to sexual activity with someone between the ages of 16 and 23. In these cases, an adult can legally have sex with a minor.
