You have to have your parents' permission for everything you do. They are concerned that your boyfriend will not last for long, as so many teenage relationships rarely last for long at all, and this one will have life long consequences because you are pregnant.

Q: Can a 17 year old girl date a boy who is 14 and turning 15 in febuary when she is turning 18 in may?

Robert Jason De Groot's answer
Date? Yes. That question is answered. Have sex? Absolutely not, it is a crime called sexual battery in FL. No one 15 or under has the ability to consent, so consent does not matter. Oddly here, the girl is old enough to consent, but the boy is not. So, the girl could most likely be charged with sexual battery, and if it occurs after she is 18, she will be charged as an adult. She might be charged as an adult now, but is actually still a minor. So, if it is brought in juvenile court, what do you...

A parent can report the crime if a crime has been committed. A parent can repeatedly call the state attorney's office.

Before you do, however, think about the ramifications. A 15 year old cannot consent to sex in FL, but what if the 15 year old was actually the aggressor? Wouldn't that be a defense...
