Response to Generic Other (Reply #26)

Mon Sep 4, 2017, 09:11 PM

119. Why do you keep saying "kids"? As Rachel sometimes says, there is a real squick factor...

...to your line of reasoning.

"Marriage" of any kind presumes "consummation." You know, SEX. Now with consenting adults not under duress this is not a problem. Likewise it is not a problem if they choose to never physically consummate, as long as they were not lied to about this eventuality. Sex is a conjugal right. The law has always addressed it.

HOWEVER, with youths (or "kids" as you keep referring to them) or persons under duress (as is certainly the case with people threatened with deportation), physical consummation becomes a matter of financial or other transaction not related to love or the usual bonds of marriage. Rape, even.

Hey, girlie, I married you and you owe me.

You, Generic Other, are really wedded to your bright idea, but frankly it stinks.
