    In a court of law, it's rape. Why risk it?

    Technically yes, it'd be illegal, but it'd be highly unlikely that you'd be prosecuted for it.

    So if someone had sex with a 15 year, 365 23 hours and 59 mins year old it's rape?

    In the eyes of the law, yes.

    They have to put a cutoff somewhere.

    Yes. Over the course of the day, she will develop the mental ability to be able to consent to sex. Just wait until the clock strikes 12.

    Anything under 16 years would be classed as statutory rape, I said this in your last thread about your underage girlfriend whom you have yet to meet. If you two really do love each other then just wait until she is 16 before you take your relationship any further.

    This has nothing to do with that becuase I ended it. It's something that just came to my head.

    I really think you're messing with me, I think it's very likely that it only takes a day for someone to consent.

    That used to be my opinion but if they let you off 'cause she was one day away then people who were 2 days away will start being let off and so on, so I'd say just wait till the girl is actually 16 haha
