    Can a 20 year old male get in trouble for dating a 16 year old female if the parents were to be alright with it?

    Yes, it's a fast track to earn the badge of sexual offender, time in jail or prison, and ruin your life.

    But, you knew that, yet you persist.

    Unwise mate, risky business.

    The parents can(and likely will) change their mind at any time.

    Giving you permission to "date" does not mean you have their blessing to have sex or sexual contact with this minor. As stated above the parents can remove their permission to see their minor child at any time

    It's best you don't do it - too risky.

    You can date a minor - you just can't have sex with a minor. The parents can change their mind and often do.

    Why in the world are you 20 and dating a 16 year old? Go find someone your own age. That's jailbait right there.
