What tabboos are left unbroken?
Are there any social taboos that would be shocking these days that wouldn't land you in jail or a crazy home? Especially in the media.

The only thing that comes to mind is when a high school teacher (now no longer employed at the school) leaves his family to move in with an 18 year old student. Legally it might be alright but morally it's reprehensible.
Can't do business with crazy!

I don't see what the big deal is, at least she isn't on her second pregnancy after a drunken fumble or smoking illicit substances with her fellow students every lunchtime like many 18 year old Brits. The pupil can walk away from this guy as soon as she realises being grown up is not all it's cracked up to be, and is unlikely to be any more emotionally scarred than any of us are by our first love. IMO the wife is far more likely to be damaged by having her trust betrayed but that is not considered newsworthy unless the 'rat' happens to be a premier league footballer or politician.
The teenager has been legally able to marry for two years, (probably) sexually active for three years, exposed to all sorts of adult stuff we never did via television and the internet. Her parents gave her a curfew but didn't monitor her mobile phone bill so they missed thousands of texts and phone calls and now claim their 'baby' has been molested. Frankly insulting to those who have been attacked by paedophiles or rapists.
"In the year of our Lord 1903, in the meat packing plants off the shores of the sea, Stood a young man at his slaughter post a newby by his side, He said grind it up and ship it out doesn't matter what's inside, With poison bread to kill the rats, an effective tool of trade ..." Flatfoot 56

Lets see: female teachers having babies by their (barely) teenage student lovers (one while still in prison for the crime); nurses betting on which patient is going to die next in ICU; Jewish stockbroker bilking Jewish clients of their retirement accounts and living a high old life until caught; priests having sex with nuns, altarboys, parishioners; boyfriend raping bsby he is entrusted to watch while the baby's mother works to support the lazy bum and her child; boyfriend and children's mother drowning her children in a car and lying that it was an accident; Nope, cant think of anything that hasnt been done. Nothing new under the sun.

Most stuff like that is pretty mild compared to what was done under Caligula's reign.
