i resently got grounded b/c i came home late one night.
it has been almost 3 weeks now, and my parents hav claimed ill b grounded for over 4 months. Parents are required to give you shelter, food, water, weather appropriate clothing, appropriate medical care, and access to education as required by your state, and little else.
my restrictions basically are i cant see him, nor can i go out anywhere with my friends. and i understand that me n him only being 1 year and 11 months apart is okay (lawfully). If you leave without permission or against their wishes, you can eventually be deemed incorrigible. You have very few rights - and the rights of your parents generally trump EVERYTHING else. If they kick you out, you can summon police or child protective service who will remind them that they can be arrested for neglect if they don't provide or arrange for you to have the provisions as outlined above.We got along great and the age difference wasn't an issue for either of us. Thanks for the advice I feel ready for a lifelong, committed relationship. We are both quite spiritual in a very non religious way and work together in that way quite beautifully.I was several years older than 19, but, I don't regret or think I lost anything in the period of our time together. We don't look physically or energetically like there's an age gap. I don't want to be a casuality in his love life since he is so young It was the same for us at the time.It’s a funny thing, but every time you hear older men defending their penchant for girlfriends half their age, they always say: ‘She keeps me young.’ Unfortunately, young men have the opposite effect. Domestically, because you are the older one, you take responsibility (and blame) for everything from contraception to gas bills to dinner. I didn’t care if he got ‘found’; I cared only that he got lost. so this is my first relationship, i met him and began "going out" with him while i was 15 and he was 17.
