The boy is just barely 16, i heard its illegal if they have sex or anything sexual together. They have been together for a year but rarely have sex. There are no laws in any state that regulate the ages of people involved in social, non-sexual dating. If your question concerns sexual relations, the answer would depend on the state where they are located. The age of consent varies by state from 16 to 18, with 16 being the most common. In some states there is also a close in age exceptions.
The real rules about how old and young you can date. According to this rule, society should accept a 50 year old man dating a 32 year old woman. A quick poll of my friends says otherwise.

In other words, does the creepiness rule actually reflect what society findscreepy?
The age on consent in Canada is It does not vary by province. If she is 16, she can has sexual relations with anyone she wants baring being in a position of authority - teacher, councilor, doctor, etc. Further, a 14 and 15 year old can has sexual relations with anyone within five years of their age and a 12 or 13 year old can have sexual relations with anyone within two years of their age. I'm not sure why this is hard to understand or why folks are saying it is illegal without actually looking up and reading the law. If sexual contact isn't involved, then there are no laws in Canada against just dating someone. That said
