I'm an 18 year old male and my boyfriend is 16 years old. We live in the state of Minnesota and gay marriage is recognized here. Is it considered statutory rape if we have sex? Or is there a variance on how far apart we are in age?

Hello. In Minnesota, the age of consent generally is age 16 However, there are a multitude of exceptions to the general rule (for instance, vulnerability, position of authority, and more) and you should definitely seek private legal advice for your personal concern.
