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 kinda sets off some warning bells.

Thanks for the input about Sweden!

According to Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_consent_in_North_America#United_States):
“The ages of consent in North America for sexual activity vary by jurisdiction.

The age of consent in Canada is 16. All U.S. states set their limits between 16 and 18.

The age of consent in Mexico is complex. Typically, Mexican states have a “primary” age of consent (which may be as low as 12), and sexual conduct with persons below that age is always illegal. Sexual relations which occur between adults and teenagers under 18 are left in a legal gray area: laws against corruption of minors as well as estupro laws can be applied to such acts, at the discretion of the prosecution. These laws are situational and are subject to interpretation.

The ages of consent in the countries of Central America range from 14 to 18.“

Each state in the U.S. has different laws, so here’s a page with all of them: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_consent_in_the_United_States
