    Default I just do not understand the age of consent in America

    Not that it matters because am married, but wife and I are confused watching TV.

    In England, both parties need to be 16 years old to legally have sex - whether male-female, male-male or female-female.

    But I don't get the rules here. What's the age?

    You'd think they'd put signs up with a difference like that.

    And the underage women should pay to put them up.

    It is not the responsibility of the Gvnmt to tell you what the laws are it is your responsibility to find out...

    The saying is "Ignorance of the law is no excuse"

    That's not why I am asking, but could have been a good reason for me to do so.
