Hello,

A 19 year old is an adult and is free to consent to sex with any partner of her choice under every US state and Federal law. That is true regardless of the age of the other person.

More specifically, the age of sexual consent in Mississippi is 16 years old. It would not be a crime for you to have a consensual relationship with a 19 year old.
