Imagine that you jump out of a car and get run over by it?! I don't think that the man should be charged for his girlfriends stupidity.

This doesn't make any sense- if you are 30+ years old you don't have "boyfriends" and "girlfriends". If you are straight you are married by then.

Good point. Playing "boyfriend" and "girlfriend" is for young people- and it's especially creepy with a 45 year old loser.

What's that got to do with anything? Middle aged "boyfriends" and "girlfriends" are still creepy, any way you cut it.

How did moron jumping out of a car turn into a mud sling of old people and their prefence of titles?? We're missing the main point that a man may sit in jail because of a crackhead getting excited and jumping out of a moving car.

Really? So according to you anyone over a certain age is not allowed any sort of romantic relationship if they wish to remain suitably UNcreepy? What the fuzzy?

I would imagine that the issue stems more from the paper's use of the words "boyfriend" and "girlfriend," which seems to do a better job of conjuring up images of clumsy backseat groping or petulant, whiny and immature text-message arguments. Don't we have anything better in the English language with which to label couples who date exclusively, but are not committed by engagement or marriage?*Lover* is far too cosmopolitan, or romance novel-ish and implies a relationship based almost entirely on sex.*Paramour* is even worse, and just plain *friend* doesn't cut the mustard, either.*Man Friend,* or *Lady Friend* sounds rather geriatric and overly genteel, IMO, and *partner* sounds like a business or living arrangement, so what is there? Is no one in their 30s, 40s or 50s supposed to have a meaningful love relationship outside of marriange in our culture? Is the thought of middle-aged romance, even between attractive people, just so abhorrent that we don't dare put a name to it? How very, very sad. I hope you look back on your comment in your own middle age, Lawyer, and cringe.

As for the couple at hand, no matter what your label or the state of your relationship, you DON'T jump out of a moving vehicle!

It is the woman's fault, if she was smart she would have tucked and rolled when she jumped out of the moving truck. It's not her boyfriends problem that she doesn't know how to jump out of a moving vehicle properly. Hopefully she learned her lesson and next time she will tuck and roll.
