The other parent is the alternative residential parent, or ARP.The legal term “custodial parent” under the old law is not exactly the same as “primary residential parent” under the current law.In the United States, age of consent laws regarding sexual activity are made at the state level.
This is called the “age of consent.” These laws are meant to protect minors from being manipulated or forced into sex with older people. "We tell (our employees) to respect the law," Tashie says."It's a real problem when an 18-year-old comes up with a 17-year-old date. That means you 17-year-old's out there in Tennessee may have to suck up your pride and let Mom and Pop buy your R-rated movie tickets!Get familiar with these laws, so you and your partner know what is or isn’t legal in your state. Keep in mind that the laws may be different depending on the type of sexual behavior—vaginal, anal or oral—and the gender of your partner. We have to say, ' We're sorry.' We don't want to get called on it (by a parent or by the state)." Tashie says if a parent or adult guardian accompanies a 17-year-old to the box office and purchases the minor's ticket, Malco will allow the adult to leave the teenager at the theater to watch the R-rated movie.
