Most states will not permit registered sex offenders to reside in communities near schools, playgrounds, or parks.

California law allows a marital exemption so that the marriage partners of married minors are not charged and prosecuted under the statutory rape laws.

But it may be confusing to some people about the term "minor" and the concept of when it is "legal" to have sex.
