    This is absolute insanity. Common sense must prevail at times. The norm for relationship in this culture, MayaLadino, should override the antiquated carnal knowledge law. Carnal knowledge laws are meant to protect sexual predators from harming the innocent not to criminalize teenagers who are not breaking any laws and whose relationships are accepted as the norm in their culture.
