    Question: Is it illegal for a boy 16yrs old to have a 12yr ols girlfriend, in Az., if the parent is completely against it?


    It isn't illegal to have a girlfriend who is younger than you. If her parents don't want you to be boyfriend and girlfriend then they can keep you from seeing her.

    If you are trying to ask about sex in a round about way, check out this section of LawForKids.org with laws about sex.

    Its not illegal to date someone younger than you in any category. 16 vs 12. 18 vs. 14. 75 vs 71 (icky) But, it becomes illegal if you do anything of a sexual nature, and not just sex, all the "other stuff". If anyone is under 16, (the lowest age of consent that I know of) and they are messing with someone over 16, especially over 18, then the older person would be breaking the law. Big time. I have my Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice.
