If a 15 or 16 year old normally can't even enter into a contract, then how can they possibly be considered responsible enough to choose to have sexual relations?
You cannot forbid 16 year old teenagers to have sex. Well, of course you can but it doesn't have much of an impact, it merely creates some extra enjoyment via breaking a rule (you could call it the 50s factor) for them.
We know that you cannot stand the end of patriarchy and the existence of contraception, that the "good old times" are over and that women are no longer the property of men. But that is your problem, not ours.
