16 dating 20 year old
She claimed it was rape, he claimed it was consensual, and a jury acquitted him of the charges.However, because of their age difference, the jury still found Dixon guilty of statutory rape and aggravated child molestation, and sentenced him to a mandatory 10 years in prison under Georgia law.That's not necessarily the end of the world, but you have to be a little more vigilant to make sure your relationship is always one between equals and neither of you ends up resenting the other. I am in a relationship that started with her at 19 me at 25 we have been together 7 years at this point.IMO emotional maturity is the most important thing.In May 2004, the Georgia Supreme Court overturned Dixon’s conviction, stating that he should’ve been prosecuted on the lesser charge of misdemeanor statutory rape, which carries a maximum sentence of one year.
My Boyfriend is six years older than me, (I'm 18 he's 24).She'll probably change a lot over the next couple years. I'm not saying not to date her, but I would keep it very casual for awhile.I'm think more along the lines of emotional maturity because I feel like there's a huge difference between being 20 and around 23. I don't think you'll have too many problems and you should seriously think about seeing her.The best advice I could give you, personally, is that her parents may be somewhat disapproving and it is very important that you respect their concerns.
