My question involves criminal law for the state of: Indiana
I am 36 years old, male. I am in a relationship with a 13 year old, female. The relationship was initiated by her. I have known her since she was 5, we started calling each other boyfriend/girlfriend when she was 6, and we had 'sex' for the first time when she was 7, if you can even call it sex. the sex was also initiated by her. I cant remember when we started having real sex with penetration. we progressed very slowly, and i never hurt her in any way.
honestly, this is the first and only young girl i have ever been attracted to. She is very mature, and she acts like a young woman, not to mention that she is absolutely gorgeous! We are still together... as long as she wants to have a relationship with me, i will stay with her. We talked about how people change a lot as they get older, and we both want to do our best to stay together through all those changes, until it is safe for us to tell our secret.
She is very much aware that what are doing is illegal, and since the very beginning we both make sure to cover our tracks. But we dont want to hide this forever!
1. how old should she be before we tell people that we are in a relationship?
2. how old must she be before we tell people how long we have been together?
In both cases, we will both deny that we ever had sex. You dont need sex for a relationship!
Yes, i know this is not an ideal situation. But it happened, so i simply want to know what we have to do, because this is not something we want to keep a secret for our entire lives.
