Is it okay for 17 and 20 to date?
It is even legal to have sex with this particular age difference. Barring nonconsensual contact, you shouldnt have anything to worry about. As attorney Regan stated, there may be moral issues, but legally youre fine.
Is it legal for a 16 year old to date a 22 year old UK?
The age of consent in the UK is 16. This means that its against the law for someone to have sex with someone under the age of 16. It wouldnt be illegal for someone whos 16 to have a relationship with someone who is 30 - unless that person is their teacher or in a position of authority.
