I can't quite decide what to make of this!

US teacher marries boy she raped

Yes I saw that earlier - seems odd he'd want to marry someone who 'raped' him - unless of course in american they term underage sex as rape?????

One of my best friends is now happily to married to one of the ex houseparents from the boarding school we attended

Was the 'child rape' definition because she was having sex with him while he was under age?

I thought that underage sex in the UK is also considered rape as a child below 16 cannot give consent?

Aren't there lesser degress in underage sex cases? Sex with an underage adolescent is obviously different to sex with a small child. A 13 year old can obviously look 16.
