Q: What if a minor (16) runs to your home and is from an abusive home seeking safety?

Specifically, mental abuse. A lot of insults, and not allowing the child to have friends or a love life (child is 16). Punishments for unusual things like accidentally making a mess with food.

Q: a lady is told he's divorced, she dates, engaged, then marries him & then finds out he's still legally married

has she committed adultry or had an affair?

Homer P Jordan IV answered on Apr 30, 2021

It doesn’t sound like she has done anything wrong, as she was not married and thought he was a divorced man. He, on the other hand, was still married, so this marriage would not be legitimate.

If you are over the age of 18 you don’t need his permission to leave, you can just leave (same with your wife). If he’s threatening to shoot you then it would be wise to call the police and get assistance.
