What is the appropriate age, then? I know men and women well into their 20s who are about as immature and childish and irresponsible as they come.
The courts and legal system shouldn't be involved when a 16 year old girl has sex with her 18 year old boyfriend.

Twelve?!!! Twelve?!!! So the Philippean gov't. is sanctioning 12 year old CHILDREN being sexually active? And not only that....they can legally have sex with someone 3, 4,or 5 times older than themselves? What in the world would be the rationale behind that?

Twelve does seem a bit young, Eldard. Is it really 12, or are you having fun with the voyeurs and pedophiles on ATS?
It is illegal for an American citizen or resident to have sex in another country with someone aged under 16, unless the age difference is less than 4 years, in which case the minimum age is 12.]/b]
It appears it's true. I wondered myself, did a google search and turned up a chart of worldwide consent ages.
Most 18 year olds in America are not mature enough to make a grilled cheese sandwich

Dear god dude, don't do things like that you never know who's watching you and what they are recording. Hope your not thinking of running for a government off because you definitely cooked your goose there.
Good post by the way it's interesting to get other peoples takes on the subject, I really don't know what to think about that kid of 13 being a father, it's one of the very few times I'm lost for words.
I think it should all depend on the education level sex ed is taught at
