Rape a Virgin, Get a Wife

Deuteronomy 22:28-29: "If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay her father fifty shekels* of silver. He must marry the young woman, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives."

 *about 20 ounces of silver or about $300
