The age of consent is, according to the most common usage of the term, the age at which people may legally engage in sex. Some countries have different ages of consent for different people — there may be a difference between male and female, for example, or between heterosexuals and homosexuals. The age of consent is not necessarily the same as the age at which people can get married, and is not necessarily the age at which people cease to be considered minors.
