A: DO NOT DO IT! You trying to split hairs about ages and birth dates will get you clubbed over the head by the long arm of the law if you two do engage in sex while she is under age 16. You are about to be 18. But you don't need to wait until then to find yourself facing a real adult prison sentence.

The repeated reference to "you" is intentional because you are the only one in this scenario facing legal consequences. Keep that in mind as you two try to figure out the when and how's. What will she be doing while you are in prison?
