      The title is misguided and author are misguided.
      Statutory rape is defined as sexual intercourse with a female who is underage, even if consent is given. Meaning if consent was given, it was not rape in the general sense of the word (i.e. the woman was willing, but it termed “rape” because she was underage).
      The President is saying that the man who committed the sexual act should be compelled to marry her, IF SHE HERSELF WANTS TO. The law does not dictate that she MUST, it is completely up to her. Since the sexual act itself was consensual, most women would not mind doing just this, as opposed to facing social stigma and in the case of the man, jail time, which was the case up till now.
