  • Alright im so 15 and my baby is 1 month old. His father is 17 and is in the national guard. when he went to basic training they told him he could no longer date minors. does that mean we cant be together and have a family even though we have a baby?

  • It doesn't sound right but I would call a legal clinic just to check. A woman's clinic may be able to give you the name of one.

  • I have two brothers in the air force (one also in national guard), a nephew who is in the marines, and based on what I know, I would say it does sound right.. all branches of the military are very very strict about moral, and in most states that technically that would be 2nd or 3rd degree statutory rape.

    IN West Virginia
    Third-degree sexual assault for a person age 16 or older to have sexual intercourse with a person under age 16 and at least four years younger than the actor


    Also, if they say it's not allowed, it's their policy, regardless of whether it's against the law. It's just how it works.

    I'm sorry you have to go through this.

  • I agree. It sounds like you guys aren't permitted to be together for the time being. It's unfortunate that your family can't be together for now but these laws and rules are in place for a reason.
