    Problem With Age Diffrences

    Okay, I've been wondering this for a while now. Why is it that a, for example, a 15 year old can't go out with a 13 year old, but a 33 year old can go out with a 42 year old eh? I mean, my mama was 36 and my dad was 44!! So why is that?

    Difference between a 15 year old going out with a 13 year old and a 33 year old going out with a 42 year old is two simple things: 1) The latter example being that they are both consenting adults, 2) having said that they are adults, the second thing is emotional and mental maturity.

    The two kids (15 and 13 year olds are kids) are not Adults, nor do they have the life experiences that an adult would have to give them the amount of maturity to handle any kind of close personal relationship.

    Age does not matter when it comes to the affairs of the heart, but only when you have the maturity to handle that kind of situation.

    Because 13 and 15 year olds aren't considered adults. Actually, it depends on the laws of the state you're in; in fact, I don't think any state wouldn't allow minors with a two year or less age difference to date. The problem would come in with, say, a 13 or 15 year old dating someone 18 years or older.

    But in some countries a sensei can marry a student (which is messed up) so yeah that's why should kids just wait then?

    Re: Problem With Age Diffrences

    Its mostly because of the growing differences.

    A 13 and a 15 yr old look different because they are at different stages of puberty.

    A 36 and a 44 yr. old have stopped growing, so one does not look THAT much older than the other, though of course there will be some differences.


    Thanks to _gwenibe_ for this awesome sig!

    Re: Problem With Age Diffrences

    o_o Well exactly, in SOME COUNTRIES, as you said.


    The problem is mental maturity... 13 and 15 year olds can be YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS apart in mental maturity. Though sometimes, that ain't true... sometimes, the 15 year old is just as immature as the 13 year old...

    ... it's rarely the case vice versa.


    ... it makes sense when:
    14 ♥ 15
    17 ♥ 19
    20 ♥ 28
    30 ♥ 45
    56 ♥ 68
    90 ♥ 120 etc...

    But that's because the mental states SHOULD be the same... (well, I'm not so sure about the 20 ♥ 28.... 28-year-olds usually have a different mindset due to their fear of being 30)

    13 is still a really young teen, where some of their minds still find strength and greatness of being a true teen.... kinda like when an immature kid turns 18... they find a lot of power from such a feat......... you just really want to shake your head and walk away.



    And of course.... parental acceptance. You still live under your parent's house, and must still follow their rules.

    If you wanna love em, then keep it quiet... or run away. Both work.



    >_> I suggest on the "keep it quiet" is the better solution. *winks at Abu*

    Re: Problem With Age Diffrences

    i see nothing wrong with age difference as long as their love and commintment to each other is genuine. Teenagers are really known for their commitment, but then again, people in their mid life aren't really looking for love most times (thinking, "i don't want to die alone")...

    so, i think as long as they both understand what they're promising and are loyal to each other, then i think any age is fine. But, if they are minors (whatever that age may be), they're parents still have a right to say something about it. Whether the kids listen or not, is ultimately up to them...
