Question: Can a 16 year old date a 18 year old in North Dakota?

In North Dakota, it is illegal for an adult (someone 18 or older) to have sex with a minor (someone younger than 18), even if the sex is consensual.

Is it illegal for an 18 year old to have relations with a 16 year old?

There arent any laws around being in a non-sexual relationship where one person is under 18 and the other over. Once you turn 16 its not illegal for someone to have sex with you no matter how old they are.

18 years of age The age of majority in North Dakota is 18 years of age, meaning at the age of 18 a minor child has reached the age of an adult and is no longer under the authority of the parent.

16 The Age of Consent is 18 in eleven states - California, New York, Florida, Oregon, Utah, Iowa, Arkansas, Tennessee, West Virginia, Vermont, and Delaware. The lowest state Age of Consent in the United States is 16.
