You need to follow the rules and wait until you are 18. If he is still there and you feel the same, great, it was meant to be and the time means nothing. If he moved on and you no longer feel the same way then it was never meant to be.
Now, Ms.MewzyCat - Everyone is correct there is nothing you can do until you are 18. Everything that you could do besides waiting until you are 18 "the powers that be" either won't give you a time a day because you are not 18 or the actions that you could do will take so long to go through that by the time you complete spending the time and money that you most likely don't have since you are 17 you will already be 18 so there is no point....Also take this time to consider other future options for yourself besides the binds of marriage. You are at an age where you are unimpressed by your hometown life and are looking for more stimulating life events. The truth is is that you are on the brink of an exciting adult future. There is no need to rush the events, especially since they will come to you. Enjoy your youth, it leaves steadily but fast. You are not done growing. You think you may know yourself right now, but within the next 5 years of your life you will truely blossom into who you really are. Who you are at 17 is not who you are ment to be forever. Don't make the transformation harder on yourself. Don't complicate or tie yourself down in the blast of freedom. Explore, Learn, Become.
Your parents have the appartment and the upper hand on you. Say nothing and do nothing until he gets out. He is 21 and a man to make life decisions about the two of you, once he gets out of jail. Your life depend on his decision not your parents. In the mean time get a job (money) and move out ASAP.
I fear that your parents will interfere with your relationships for the rest of your life. They will live to regret it because someday they will be dependent upon you when they become elderly. Then it will be your turn to run the show, and remind them how they mistreated you when you were a teen.
I'm cofused on how they could have him arrested. The legal age of Consent is 16 in Mississippi. There is a difference between "Consent" and "Being of Age". The legal age of Consent only applies to sexual conduct. If you are 17, you are legally able to decide if you want to have sex with this man.
The age of Consent in Mississippi is 16; the law clearly states that you can legally make the choice to engage in sexual activity at that age. As far as the trespassing charge, that's for the courts to decide. But he should not be charged with a sexually based offense.
Interesting you know the age of consent in Mississippi. :)
I did an internship in Mississippi when I graduated from Law School
Use the time to think about what kind of guy at 21 would want a 17 yo girl? It will take years for you to train him to be mature.
well if your living in there house and they support u, there is not a lot you can do.
again i say wait, see how you feel in a week and see what he does within the week
The Mississippi legal Age of Consent for sexual contact is 16 years old. A total of thirty one states have set their age of consent at 16, the lowest age of consent in any state.
that's ******* horrible
what a stupid azz reason to have a sexual offense on your record.
damn people need to think things through :(
He should-and probably did-know better. If he truly cared, he'd wait till you're 18 AND earn the respect and approval of your family.
You should listen to your father and follow his advice.
Isn't 16 the age of consent? I doubt this story is true.
Uh... where does consent come in at all?
You don't seem to be telling the whole story, Mewzy... my understanding of it changes every single time you post something...
Then those cops are corrupt as all hell and need to be removed from the force, blacklisted from the force, arrested, and imprisoned.
just wait till your 18 and do what you want and tell the police to get outta your face and then call a lawyer, slap harassment charges on police if they bother you also invasion of privacy
I'm terribly sorry, but police won't let under age girls go if men are that age and when parents get involved.. I've been there... Not gonna work and your relationship won't work out in the end either... Parents are monsters!
There's nothing you can do. You are underage, and not a family member.
Wait til you're 18. Until then, you have no rights regarding this matter.
Go to court and state unequivocally that the two of you are waiting til you turn18 to do anything that requires or implies nudity. good luck...
You cannot do a thing until you are 18
You commit suicide because you're too ******* stupid to tell a believable lie.
If it's not a lie, call the FBI and have them investigate those police officers.
If I'm understanding this situation correctly... your parents are the ONLY ONES who committed a crime. They should be the ones being arrested.
You are correct.
16 you can consent to s-e-x, but not with anyone more than 3 years older than you.
Write to him.
What was he arrested for?
..Wait what? Wow. I'd murder your parents for calling the police then. They are ******* ********.
Tough situation, I think your parents are trying to look out for you, at 21 he knows more about the world than you and life saver or not if you were vulnerable enough to take an OD maybe he can see that and wants to take advantage?
Write to him and ask how he is.
Just be safe and take care.
Wait until you are 18. Until then a relationship with you without parental consent is a criminal act for him.
Actually, it's not a criminal act...
Actually having relations with a minor is a criminal act or else people would not be arrested for having the relations "when turned in".
Actually she said absolutely nothing whatsoever about sexual relations, and he was arrested for TRESPASSING, not sexual offenses.
