    Legally yes, but your parents could still pursue statutory rape depending on how old he is. You might just want to consider waiting until you are older,out of school and or married though to continue a sexual relationship whether you turn out to be pregnant or not. I know I sound like a broken record and all but over the months I have talked with you I have counted at least 3-5 guys that you have been with and multiple pregnancy scares, it just doesn’t sound like a healthy lifestyle to me, in the end you need to make your own choices but when you finally realize that you are on the wrong road don’t ever claim that you were not warned of the serious repercussions that you are facing…Meg
