In RealLife, the age of consent varies from place to place, but in fiction it is almost always 18, largely due to SoCalization.[[note]] As mentioned on that page, California's consent law 18 with no exceptions is the strictest in the United States (and possibly the industrialized world). Most US states set consent at 16, and many of the others that set it at 17 or 18 allow for some flexibility. As [[Blog/{{Websnark}} Eric Burns-White]] puts it, referring to the subject of the page image, "[[http://new.websnark.com/post/7042576331/i-should-mention-before-we-go-any-further California: Not As Liberal As You Think.]]"[[/note]] For example, the above quote from ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' has it wrong; that series is based in New York, where the age of consent is 17. [[note]]Some jurisdictions, including the United States at the federal level, make it expressly illegal to cross state lines to skirt age of consent laws. The act is usually considered a form of sex tourism.[[/note]] Some people still might draw the line at 18 even if the age of consent is 16, either because of {{Squick}} or because a 16-year-old is still a minor, and their parents might make trouble.

crush is unquestionably an adult.

* There has been a disturbing practice of adults keeping a countdown until an attractive underage celebrity turns eighteen, such as the Olsen twins and Creator/LindsayLohan.

* On ''Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun'', Dick mentioned that a French film released years ago was finally coming out in the U.S. because "they had to wait until the actress was of legal age."

When an adult expectantly waits for the day a minor will reach the age of consent and be fair game for legal sexual conquest. A key component in any good WifeHusbandry plan. In many cases, there might be no sex involved and it's just the age where one can admit to finding a teenager attractive without sounding like a pervert. Nonetheless, it can become ''very'' {{Squick}}y ''very'' easily. For instance, if there's a daily countdown or a clock ticking down the seconds, then it is officially creepy. This person is too interested in ''exactly'' how long they have to wait before they can legally deflower their target.

* In Creator/TeresaEdgerton's second {{Celydonn}} trilogy, Gwenlliant is married to her cousin when she is twelve; he is more than a decade older and would have preferred to wait at least four years before courting her, but her father forced the issue by setting up an ArrangedMarriage for her with a DomesticAbuser. A long period of InnocentCohabitation follows. At one point Gwenlliant spends about a year longer in the Inner Celydonn than has passed in the real Celydonn, which has two unintended side effects: reducing the wait, and of separating them for so long that a WeddingDeadline is introduced.
