There are so many things I'm glad I don't know.  This also shows whose minds are in the gutter and whose aren't...
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.

Met my second cousin's stepdaughter yesterday, at a first sight I thought she looked particularly Russian or Ukrainian. We started to talk and she commented she was going to look for Polish citizenship due to ancestry, but curiously couldn't find many ocurrences of her surname online. After she told me her grandfather lost his home after World War II, Operation Vistula came to mind, so I simply googled her surname in the Cyrillic alphabet and found out it was actually Ukrainian.

I thought she looked nice, smart and religious so I might "invest" on her. Then I found out she's fourteen (I swear she looks pretty older than that). My family kept telling we should get together anyway, but I guess that's the kind of stuff younger people tend to be more conservative about, lol.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

People are considered capable of sexual discernment when they turn 14, so it's prima facie perfectly legal from that point, but "rape of vulnerable person" in absolute presumption before it. This works not only for the sake of legal sexual relationships, but also for other kinds of sexual crimes.
