The age of consent in Texas is 17. So your girlfriend, if she is 17, may consent to have sex with you.
However, she is still a minor and if she lives with her parents, they can try to keep her from dating you. But legally, as long as she ALWAYS consents to intimate activity, each time that activity occurs, you are not doing anything legally wrong.
