There’s no set age to be ready for sex so the law has to generalise.
Find out what it means to you - and what happens if you or the person you want to have sex with is under the age of consent.
In the eyes of the law people are unable to give informed consent to sex when they are still considered a child.
This may seem unfair, but try to remember that the law is there to protect you.
Sadly, all it takes to turn a teenage romance into a nightmare that never ends is a single complaint to the police from an angry parent or a jilted boyfriend or girlfriend.
That’s why every parent of every Arizona teen must be certain they understand these rather complicated rules and ensure that their children understand and abide by them completely.
