Do you think they want to have a young person around? 10) Intimacy may be illegal for longer than you’d like. Up and end this relationship because it’s not worth sending them to jail.Uh, probably not, especially if you’re under legal age and they’re all over it. If one of you turns 18 and the other one is still 13, you might have to sit and wait or just call it quits. 12) You’re less likely to give them pushback because of this.1) Everyone’s going to question why you two are together.To be fair, your family may have a good point, but that doesn’t stop these questions from being annoying af.No matter what, they feel like they can drop this card at any time.

For one person, they’ve been waiting forever to finally reap all of the privileges of being 18 or 21, so now that they have to lag behind to keep you included totally sucks, I’m not going to lie about it. We all know in the future it won’t be a huge deal, but for right now, for your life currently in this moment, on paper, it’s might not be a good idea. People develop at different speeds and reach milestones at different times and that totally affects what you value and what you think is fun.
