With some quick math, the rule provides a minimum and maximum partner age based on your actual age that, if you choose to follow it, you can use to guide your dating decisions. It lets you chart acceptable age discrepancies that adjust over the years. Researchers Buunk and colleagues (2000) asked men and women to identify the ages they would consider when evaluating someone for relationships of different levels of involvement.According to the rule, for example, a 30-year-old should be with a partner who is at least 22, while a 50-year-old’s dating partner must be at least 32 to not attract (presumed) social sanction. Does it match our scientific understanding of age-related preferences for dating? People reported distinct age preferences for marriage; a serious relationship; falling in love; casual sex; and sexual fantasies. Based on the figures Buunk and colleagues (2000) provided (and thus the numbers are only informed approximations), I replotted their data superimposing the max and min age ranges defined by the half-your-age-plus-7 rule.It was his case that went all the way to the state's supreme court.
I like this 18 year old boy, but I'm not sure if it illegal for him to date me... And I also want to know what is the age limit in order for it to be illegal...
(like an 18 year old dating a 17 or younger) in california ...
It just means that it is likely the judge would overrule it.
The PO may have been informed by someone who objects and it trying to bluff him...thanks Barrister ..
Those age preferences consistently hover around the values denoted by the rule (the black line).
If anything, in practice, men are than the rule would designate appropriate.
Please give me as much detail as you can so that I can respond after receiving all the relevant details.
Well, if his PO has arbitrarily put a condition about being around minors and his offense has nothing to do with a sexual nature or minors, then he would have a defense to any probation violation that is issued as there is no logical or legal reason for the prohibition. That doesn't mean that the PO can't bring the violation and he won't have to defend against it though.
age boundary: Take your age, subtract 7, and double it.
