Dating laws for minors
As long as the dating behavior doesn't involve sexual or illegal physical contact between parties under the legal age limits, it is not illegal.
For example, Kansas Statutes § 21-3503 prohibits indecent liberties with a child, defined as sexual or lewd contact with people under the age of 16 but over 14.
While a 21-year-old man can walk right into a bar and order a drink for instance, he would not be able to bring his 20-year-old girlfriend in with him, even if she was not going to drink.
The same rule can apply to establishments such as hookah lounges if one person on the date is younger than 18, which usually is the legal smoking age.
There are some establishments that are off limits to people of a certain age.One major issue that can put a crimp in your Saturday night is a curfew law.While not universal, curfew laws generally mean that people under the age of 18 are not allowed out in public or in business establishments after certain hours.The age of consent is the law that states individuals (both male and female) have to be a certain age before they can consent to any form of sexual contact.The oldest and most common age is 18, but some states or local jurisdictions might have laws that say people aged 16, or even 15, are old enough to be able to have sex if they consent to doing so.
