They're now both consenting adults with a controversial past. Interesting how their wedding is any of our business, even though it's kind of ironic that they are still together. For me, it's something I can't help but think about, even though in the right mind, I should care less. In the end, I say let those lovebirds be.

You're right. But guess what? She was prosecuted and sent to prison for that crime, and now she's out of prison after serving her sentence. The "minor" is no longer a minor, and he's free to associate with anyone he wants. Age-wise, how is this different from Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher?

Like I said. I've reduced this case to practicalities. It's not worth fretting over.

You only use the law when it suits you. I'm sure you don't like it that the 'law' says two men can't marry, or that homosexual sex is still against the 'law' in much of America. The 'law' isn't always right, and can't determine what 2 people feel.

I think you've missed the point. No one is saying that an adult and a minor should have sex. The only reason that the police isn't going after her again is that he is no longer a minor and she has already served her prison sentence for her prior acts with him as a minor. She can't be tried again for an act that she's already served her time.

The overriding fact of all of this is that they are no longer doing anything that's even remotely illegal. Period.

The same can be said for you and everyone else. We all have certain issues with certain laws. So you may want to lay off the personal stuff.

The fact is law or no law, no one at the age that the "relationship" was started, is emotionally mature enough for that type of relationship.

In fact I question both of their maturity levels but there's nothing to do about it now.

Melon: No, I do know that. They never would have come out in public if that were not the case. I'm just tired of people calling her names and trashing her as a weirdo when they don't even know her. My Grandmother was married at 14.

My comment to Irvine was again just pointing out hypocrisies here using sarcasm.

Exactly, it seems she put her own selfish wants over the needs and welfare of her children. Maybe with a Mother like that, they might be better off now w/ out her, but they must be suffering all the same. I couldn't care less about her, but I won't apologize for thinking it was wrong for her to be involved with a 12 year old boy .

The law on underage marriages is ambiguous, in some cases, and I know that laws now are a bit more strict than they used to be, so that parents can't "barter" their children into arranged marriages against their will.

This is honestly a fairly unique situation, but all I know is that they're doing nothing illegal now, and it's none of my business beyond that.

no, the law isn't always right. and people are free to try and change it as they wish. that's why the law is a living, breathing thing.

and, no, homosexual sex isn't against the law anywhere in America. that's why Lawrence vs. Texas was so important -- it struck down the final enforced sodomy law.

and sodomy, of course, only applied to homosexuals, not to heteroseuxals who also practice "sodomy."

but that's another discussion.

I guess the only difference is that she's stuck to one boy and didn't get bored with him once he was no longer a minor...lol.

I'm not going to defend what she did to him when he was a minor. She reaped what she sowed: a criminal conviction and a sum total of eight years in prison, not to mention having to register as a sex offender from there forward.

I know they're consenting adults now, I could care less about their relationship these days. I guess that's the point I'm trying to make. It started out horribily wrong and now she's a celebrity. It's sick.
