    You'd be guessing incorrectly.
    Both of my grandfathers married my grandmothers at above the age of majority.
    My paternal grandfather was 25.
    My paternal grandmother was 24.
    My maternal grandfather was 23.
    My maternal grandmother was 21.
    My father was 26.
    My mother was 25.
    I was 21, when I married my wife.
    My wife was 22, when she married me.


    What other crime can you commit, and buy your way out of it? The creep broke the law. Creeps like that will continue to break the law, if there are no consequences.

    You're right, the creep doesn't belong in jail.
    If he's convicted, he belongs in a prison cell.
    These evil devils never stop with the molestation and conquest of one, young girl.
    But, as I'm not the parent, it isn't up to me.
    My daughter never met this fate. But, had she been molested, I'd have had the creep prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    We are not in the UK.
    We are in the USA.
    Ignoring child rape is just one of the ways our culture (US culture) is being destroyed.
    This saddens me.
    I feel so sick that any adult would do this to a child.
    I feel even sicker when other adults excuse child rape.
    We are a nation of laws.
    We have lost our way!

    With respect, Judge...

    Yes, I realize we're in the US. Does that mean that only your values matter? Of course not.

    We've established that this 22 year old has broken the law.

    We've established that this OP has legal options enabling her/him to pursue this in the legal context.

    Everything else is extraneous to the issue. Seriously.

    With all due respect, you brought up the issue of your native country.
    What is germane to this is US law.
    US law does not sanction a 22 year old having sexual relations with a 16 year old.

    But, all of this is just opinion and speculation isn't it?

    I brought up my country because you raised the issue of "perversion" - which is obviously quite subjective :)

    In some states it IS perfectly legal to have sexual relations with a 16 year old - that was my point. Your opinion was, quite obviously, that this is perverted in any context, in any state, in any situation. My point was that the law disagrees with you not only in many states within the US, but on a global level too.

    Granted, the "global" issue is moot here - but on a State level, it is indeed germane.

    That's all, really :)

    We are not helping the OP by bickering about opinons! The law is what it is. Since the law says the act was a crime them OP must use that (not our opinons) to base her decision. Now can we get back to the OP's question(s) and stop bickering over issues that mean nothing!?
