This may be a dumb question but is there any law for ages of same sex couples, like with straight its is illegal to be 18 and the other one younger, so just wondering if theres anything like that with same sex couples.

Yes...

There are different laws depending on the state. Also, 18 for straight couples is not the law everywhere, either.

I think your talking about st

I think your talking about statutory rape laws, and those are federal laws (I think) their is also an "age of consent" that differs from state to state. The Statutory Rape laws apply to all couples, young, old, gay and striaght.

I know that in South Carolina

I know that in South Carolina, the age is 17, I'm pretty sure....

So a 17 and a 14 year old would be in violation in SC. Not sure about anywhere else tho.

age of consent

As far as I know, it's 16 in Indiana. You might check www.ageofconsent.org. I don't know how up-to-date their information is, but it might help.
