The setting is present day, New York urban fantasy. One of my main characters is a sixteen year old lesbian. This isn't a problem. But her new girlfriend is twenty seven. My main character told her new girlfriend two lies: A). That she lives with a roommate, not her father. B). That she's twenty.
There is a scene in the story in which the father finds them together and reveals that not is he her father not her roommate, but that she's sixteen. The new girlfriend storms out of the house angry because of the lies and scared because she was boffing a sixteen year old and could get arrested for statutory rape. I have to know in reality how important is age in lesbian relationships. Is 'age just a number' or is it more then that?
