I don't care for the Ezra/Aria relationship. It's just weird to me. Plus, Ezra is just SO boring. I think the problem is that he doesn't have a storyline outside of just being Aria's love interest.

Their relationship seems doomed anyway. Like Aria said, there are too many outside forces going against them. And am I the only one who finds it totally unrealistic that they haven't had sex yet? I mean, come on now.

you know what everyone has their own opinions on the ezria relationship. i personally love it because it is forbidden. Also some of you are fogetting that they hooked up BEFORE she founf out he was her teacher. So he wasnt abusing his power in any way at all. Even afterwards when she found out he was a teacher they stopped for a bit. The fact that the realtionship started BEFORE is a valid point.
Also my hovercraft has eels? lol

....among adults, most teens arent influenced by tv shows and movies the way people think we are. I think every teenager who shows up on comments can agree with this, or at least most of them. I can only speak for myself and my friends when i say: give us a lot more credit than that. We arent as shallow as you think who does what fictional, tv characters do. Besides, i dont think they glamourize it like you say NADIA. They have show the baggage and dissappoint that comes along with it, i think what they have shown so far, in terms of problems theyve faced and how they delt with them, have been realistic so far. the realisticism(is that a word?) you are searching for has never happened. As ive said before, and will say again, that part of their relationship is no longer a factor. So GET OVER IT.

Okay, so given that information that you gave, i cant argue against that. But take this into consideration: What if they didnt have sex while they were in that bed, which was a dream by the way. Since this is a popular show among teens, compared to the likes of shows like TVD, gossip girl, etc., i imagine the producers of the show would want to wait when considering to let thier most popular couple have sex and i think if they do have sex itwould be an elaborate love scene;something that would please the fans.If they are planning to do a love scene between the two, i think the producers would wait for her to be 17 , so They could avoid backlash from critics. @Nadia, let me school you on something. A couple of months ago, right before school ended, i did a 'Survey', if you will, amomg my peers and asked them if they would have a illicit relationship with any of their teachers. All of them, all 20, said no. I know its not 100 but it still says alot. Contrary to popular belief...

I appreciate that you guys seem to be the only blog or news site that continuously comments on what I think is a troubling relationship. Ezra was her teacher, and she was in HIGH SCHOOL. I think if this relationship happened in the real world people would be outraged and horrified. The teacher would be crucified because it is absolutely and completely the abuse of power (EVEN if she consented). If this happened in the real world, it would be all over the news and no one would think "awwww, true love." People would say the teacher was a creep who took advantage of the naivete of a young girl.

Equally disconcerting is the way the show has made them the "epic love story" of the show, and any voice that raises concerns over the disturbing premise of their relationship is shouted down as being a "hater." The show has completely glorified this relationship and played up the "longing looks in the hallway" instead of the fact that the relationship was illegal. I taught college students as a TA starting when I was 23, and many of my students were seniors and were either 21 or 22. The thought of being in a relationship with one of them while they were my students is an absolutely horrifying, inappropriate, and disturbing thought. Technically it wouldn't have even been illegal - but it would have been wrong. The Ezra/Aria relationship IS illegal.

Ezra is at least a college graduate, a teacher, and Aria is a young girl in high school. I cannot believe the show has glorified this relationship. I cannot believe the ONLY adult comment on this relationship so far has been "disappointment." I cannot believe that no one has point blank asked Marlene King about the premise of the relationship and what a terrible message it sends. At least in the books there was real backlash against the relationship when it came out and there were consequences. On the show, everyone acts like what they're doing is beautiful and romantic.

Just to be clear, everyone: No one is calling Ezra a pedophile. Some of us are speaking purely in a legal sense. Ezra and Aria did wake up in bed together last week and according to Section 261.5 of the California Penal Code:
(c) Any person who engages in an act of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor who is more than three years younger than the perpetrator is guilty of either a misdemeanor or a felony, and shall be punished by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year, or by imprisonment in the state prison.

(d) Any person 21 years of age or older who engages in an act of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor who is under 16 years of age is guilty of either a misdemeanor or a felony, and shall be punished by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year, or by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or four years.

@Matt
She doesnt have to be 18 to date him. In all sense, with her being a couple of months to 17 and he around 23, they are legally allowed to date, they just cant have sex until she reaches the correct legal age. He did not take advantage of her, and used for sexual gain or anything remotely close to that, so future commentors dont make it seem that way, you all saw the show and he DID NOT DO THAT. DONT MAKE HIM OUT TO BE A PEDOPHILE OR HEDOPHILE( I think thats the way its said).
You all know good and well he isnt either.

All I have to say is THANK YOU CORINNE! My point exactly.

And also, if she slept with Jason IT WOULD STILL BE ILLEGAL because she's underage and he's not. People can't try playing that card with Ezra, because it's the same thing with Jason. Just saying.

First I'd just like to clear something up, Pedophilia is a psyhosexual disorder in which an adult is sexually attracted to children who have not reached puberty, generally 13 or younger. So unless I've missed something Aria is not 13 or younger and has reached puberty; therefore, Ezra is not a pedophile, nor have I seen the like on the show thus far. Another thing everyone seems to have forgotten is that when Aria and Ezra first met he was not her teacher, they were interested in each other from the moment they met when age and his occupation weren't part of their reality. Not that their relationship is something to be condoned, but really, let's not make a mountain out of a mole hill.

@tyluv3: The law doesn't care if they are teacher/student. It's a matter of whether or not Aria is 18.
