At 26 you are definitely young. In the 60’s (I was a kid) we said don’t trust anyone over 30. I see age and maturity as being separate. In your 30’s people older than you will still consider you to be young but they will expect you to be mature and act that way on the job and in raising a family.

There is nothing illegal about such a relationship – as long as it is not sexual. In most US states, the age of consent is 18, and if sex is consummated (in some cases without the consent of the parents), then such an act would be considered statutory rape.
