A weird story made all the more weird that the sixteen year old boy already had a girlfriend of 35 (at the time)! she's a mother of 3, btw. he and the girlfriend now live together. him being 18, her 37. where's the rational thinking? A married teacher accused of having an affair with a pupil aged 16 fought for the teenager's affections with his 37-year-old girlfriend, a court has been told. http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/news/...teacher%2C+says+girlfriend,+37/article.do It goes without saying the crux of the story is the teacher having sex with a pupil. clearly this is wrong. although the court hasn't ruled yet and maybe it's all a pack of lies?
