The age of consent under Tennessee Law is eighteen (18).

Also, they are 15 and 19, but either way it is four years. The only answer in this situation is that you live in a town where the welfare of a child is thrown out the window. Its only in recent history that you had to be 18 to have sex. All of history has,(without the meddling bible and their effects on laws) shown that women of bearing age should be married, age of bearing didn't matter. And a man was of age when he could bring home the meat. Now, your grandparents should be prosecuted, for being perverts and pedo's. State will not pick up charges that are not reported, by the way. Statutory rape.-(a) Mitigated statutory rape is the unlawful sexual penetration of a victim by the defendant, or of the defendant by the victim when the victim is at least fifteen (15) but less than eighteen (18) years of age and the defendant is at least four (4) but not more than five (5) years older than the victim.(b) Statutory rape is the unlawful sexual penetration of a victim by the defendant or of the defendant by the victim when:(1) The victim is at least thirteen (13) but less than fifteen (15) years of age and the defendant is at least four (4) years but less than ten (10) years older than the victim; or(2) The victim is at least fifteen (15) but less than eighteen (18) years of age and the defendant is more than five (5) but less than ten (10) years older than the victim.(c) Aggravated statutory rape is the unlawful sexual penetration of a victim by the defendant, or of the defendant by the victim when the victim is at least thirteen (13) but less than eighteen (18) years of age and the defendant is at least ten (10) years older than the victim.(d)(1) Mitigated statutory rape is a Class E felony.(2) Statutory rape is a Class E felony.(3) Aggravated statutory rape is a Class D felony.

I feel sorry for this child, and that his/her parents don't have enough good judgement to tell their child that having sex at 15 is a bad idea. You grandparents here in TN and the rest of the country were marrying at age 12 and above. Only now in this perverted age, has these ridiculous laws been made.

You can not be 18 and have sexual relations with a minor. Parents can not consent to their minor being in a sexual relationship with an adult. A parent can not consent to their child breaking the law. Not sure what your situation is, but the good luck pertained to an 18 yr old dating a 14 yr old.

If that were the case one of my friends would be in jail right now.
