Deuteronomy 22 (NIV):

28 If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, 29 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.

Most cultures have a stonger sense of statuatory rape//rape when both parties were willing—and I would venture to say that Israel was one of them. Treating translations as if every term is precisely equivalent in modern usage often leads to bad exegesis.
