Laws of success with women and dating
Faced with the extinction of their community, the Romans planned to abduct Sabine women.Romulus invited Sabine families to a festival of Neptune Equester.It is contested that the legendary event known as the "Rape of the Sabine Women", while ultimately motivated sexually, did not entail sexual violation of the Sabine women on the spot, who were instead abducted, and then implored by the Romans to marry them (as opposed to striking a deal with their fathers or brothers first, as would have been required by law).Though the sexual connotation is today dominant, the word "rape" can be used in a non-sexual context in literary English.Raptio (in archaic or literary English rendered as rape) is a Latin term referring to the large-scale abduction of women, i.e.kidnapping either for marriage or enslavement (particularly sexual slavery).
Seeking wives, the Romans negotiated with the neighboring tribe of the Sabines, without success.
English rape was in use since the 14th century in the general sense of "seize prey, take by force", from raper, an Old French legal term for "to seize", in turn from Latin rapere "seize, carry off by force, abduct".
The Latin term was also used for sexual violation, but not always.
Compare also the adjective "rapacious" which retains the generic meaning of greedy and grasping.
In Roman Catholic canon law, raptio refers to the legal prohibition of matrimony if the bride was abducted forcibly (Canon 1089 CIC).
Some of the emails I get are mini-books where the guy painfully details the situation he’s suffering through and then asks for help.
