    You would most likely be amazed by the number of archaic and otherwise ridiculous laws still on the books in this country...

    It makes no sense, unless the intent of the law was to protect the husband and not the woman. I can't even figure why it would have ever been an issue. :eusa_eh:

    If "No" was said and ignored anyways, then it was rape and should not be gotten away with.

    God bless you always!!! :) :) :)

    She didn't say "no", because she thought it was her bf.

    ^^^ Because it wasn't who she thought it was, she should still have a case because she was taken advantage of, at least in my opinion anyways.

    God bless you always!!! :) :) :)

    I am amazed by the number of archaic and otherwise ridiculous laws that are passed by local, state, and federal governments in this country TODAY.

    How can someone PRETEND to be someone's boy/girl friend without the "victim" knowing that they are not the right person? Were they blind. And why would a friend have sex with someone they are not married to, unless they are getting paid?
