I live in UK. The daughter of some friends of mine has just married a very pleasant young man. Both of them are 17. They are living with my friends until they are 18, when they will get a place of their own (in UK 18 is the age at which you can sign contracts, etc, but the age of consent for sex is 16).
They were all planning to go as a family to California for a holiday later this year, but I have just seen that the age of consent in California is up at 18. Seems rather high, but California's business not mine.
Question is, if these folks all go to California, and the two young lovebirds have sex (chances of not are tiny, to say the least, it currently takes a hydraulic press to get them apart for meals!) do they get arrested, despite the fact that they are married? If so, there might be a distinct dip in California tourism when that gets publicised, but either way they need to know before confirming the bookings, because of course if so they will go somewhere less strange.
