    but even when i read that FL says "Florida 18 illegal illegal"
    but yet that isnt the age limit as in the romeo clause in FL which makes me and my girlfriend legal. so is there any way around in illinois law like an exception law.

    As that thread indicates, if you are concerned that you will be committing statutory rape or another sex crime, but nonetheless wish to pursue the relationship, consult a lawyer.
