Oregon dating laws
Marriage is a binding contract between two people of either sex who agree to take each other as spouses.The marriage contract grants rights and duties on both parties.Assault in the 4th degree is a very common charge in cases of domestic violence.Usually, assaults in the 1st-3rd degrees, which are felonies, involve more serious physical injuries (those that involve substantial risk of death, disfigurement, and loss of function), or physical injuries through the reckless or intentional use of a deadly or dangerous weapon.(4) “Mentally incapacitated” means that a person is rendered incapable of appraising or controlling the conduct of the person at the time of the alleged offense because of the influence of a controlled or other intoxicating substance administered to the person without the consent of the person or because of any other act committed upon the person without the consent of the person.(5) “Physically helpless” means that a person is unconscious or for any other reason is physically unable to communicate unwillingness to an act.
You may not marry a first cousin or anyone nearer of kin to you (unless they are your first cousin by adoption).The legal issues involved in sexual and domestic violence are vast, and it would be impossible to cover all of them satisfactorily in a single page handout.Therefore this handout will attempt only to outline some of the pertinent laws, and to provide resources for more information.As of April 2016, two people of the same gender and at least 18 years of age, one of whom being an Oregon resident, are still able to contract to be domestic partners.Called a Declaration of Domestic Partnership, the document is available at each county clerk’s office, or online, and requires a small filing fee.
