LordJim no not exactly, I was talking about the age of consent. Today it's 18 where I live, there`s plenty of reasons not to have sex at 18 years old so I`m sure that was true back then too. Think about how arbitrary setting the age of consent at 18 would have been back then.

LordJim there was no reason to set an age like 16 or 18 back then, it would have been quite arbitrary. Nowadays we have lots of things such as basic schooling, high school, then college and masters/doctorates, also learning to drive... Among other things that makes 18 as age of consent reasonable. Back then it would be like waiting for no reason whatsoever.
