* The "Romeo and Juliet" laws are specifically used in order to help teenagers not be persecuted if they break this trope. For instance, if one partner is 17 and the other is 16 start a sexual relationship, theoretically the older one could be accused of statutory rape once they hit 18, despite the small age difference. The laws help act as a defense against teenagers who are accused of statutory rape, often by disapproving parents.
** Many states also have laws that permit underage people to marry with the consent and presence of at least one parent.
