"Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the young woman's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he has violated her, he may not put her away all his days."
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5854490

What do you think that means?

Don't be a pretty girl in a society that runs by the OT.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5854490

No, that's wrong. The passage is from Deuteronomy. The woman is not pretty, she's a damsel (a virgin) hannaharah in the Hebrew.

She's been raped. Now it will be terriblely difficult if not impossible in those Old Testament days to find a husband.

Is that because she was a bad person, or because of the hardness of men's hearts?

The law was written in ancient times so that not only would there be a dowry, but also that she should be protected from being divorced.

Is it inadequate and terrible? Yes. Who committed the sin, the rapist.

Was that always true? No. In fact, if you scroll back, you'll see that a rapist could be executed.

Don't pull out a verse and then not study it.

What would be real justice? Is there any recompense for what has been stolen from her?

Don't serve the Darkness by mocking Scripture.
