Question: What do you need to know about Arkansas legal age laws?

Can a 20 year old date a 16 year old in Arkansas?

Under the Age of Consent In many cases, a person between the ages of 14 and 16 can consent to sex with a person who is no more than 3 years older. However, if the offender is more than 20 years old, and the victim is under 16, the punishment is far harsher than it would be otherwise.

At what age can you get engaged?

There is no minimum age to get engaged, so this is legal. Im wondering if anyone else, like your family and friends know about your engagement. Its important to have support around you. You said that your boyfriend has said that once you turn 16 youre going to get married and start your own family.

Legal Ages Under Arkansas Statute As in most states, the age of majority in Arkansas is 18; however, a child as young as 16 may petition the court for emancipation (see below for more details about emancipation).
