legal age Search for pronunciation examples


n. the age at which a person is responsible for his/her own actions (including the capacity to enter into a contract which is enforceable by the other party), for damages for negligence or intentional wrongs without a parent being liable and for punishment as an adult for a crime. In almost all states the basic legal age is 18, which is the universal American voting age under the 26th Amendment to the Constitution, ratified in 1971. The national legal age for drinking or buying alcoholic beverages is 21. Marriage with or without parental consent, driving, prosecution for crimes, the right to choose an abortion and liability for damages vary from state to state.

    me gusta conocer cosas nuevas en la vida, al menos siempre que tengo la posibilidad lo hago y esta es una de ellas... además soy cariñoso, amable y buen amigo de quienes lo merecen, me gustan muchas cosas como por ejemplo: ver mi familia feliz y unida, también me gusta conocer las artes desde la pintura, la actuación, la fotografía, la musica, en específico la música clásica y la romantica aunque escucho todo tipo de musica, pero si puedo escoger lo hago, también conocer otros idiomas, para una mejor comprención y una facil comunicación ncon el mundo que me rodea y no permanecer ajeno al mundo exterior por así decirlo de alguna manera, esto es una pequeña reseña de lo pudiera ser una descripción personal. a todo aquel que tenga la posibilidad de leer este texto lo invito a que sea mi amigo ( a), agradecer además por su tiempo precioso y la posibilidad de que sea mi amigo
