lawsee...

This mess is eerily similar to something that happened in my high school. To be more specific, my 11th grade economics teacher, a former minor league baseball player who'd thrown out his arm and come to coach the baseball team and "teach" economics, had an affair with the homecoming queen, who was - ahem - in my class. As in, fourth period in the portables out back. Only in his case, he didn't get arrested; his wife found out, they divorced, and he married the homecoming queen, whom he'd gotten pregnant in the meantime. I wonder whatever happened to them. And I wonder what would've happened if we'd had an instructor who actually knew something about teaching economics...

So if they'd never had sex, but the girl's mom took her with him to get a marriage license "for love", it would have been entirely legal?

I don't know, because even if they'd gotten married, he still would've been violating school district policy that forbids employees from having sexual relationships with students. Hmmm....
