About the age question, I agree that it would probably depend a lot on where they live. As an example, that could quite possibly happen where I live (in Sweden) however it wouldn’t be as accepted as a 15 and 17 year old would be. Why? Because in America the age of consent is 18 (if I’m correct) but that age is 15 in Sweden. So just like it could be a bit like :/ if a 17 and 19 year old, or 16 and 18 year old, were dating in America (though it happens) it would be like that with 14 and 16 here.

Definitely! Plus, the age of consent actually varies depending on where you are. Some parts of the U.S. say 16, for example. And it definitely depends on how far apart they are in age, too. A 17-year-old dating a 13-year-old… Read moreAbout the age question, I agree that it would probably depend a lot on where they live.

I’ve got a question about age differences. Would it be considered appropriate for a 14 year old and a 16 year old to be in a relationship in a novel?

Hmmm, interesting question. I think it probably depends on where it’s set. I could easily see a 14-year-old wanting to be in a relationship with a 16-year-old, but I’m having a hard time seeing it go the other way. I… Read moreI’ve got a question about age differences.
