Understanding rape... what you feel about it?

The term rape has more to do with a crime against property. Strange though it may seem, it originates in the Latin rapere, from raptus, "to snatch, to grab, to carry off". The term has come to mean, since approximately the 14th century, "to seize and take away by force". In Roman law in the carrying off of a woman by force, with or without intercourse, constituted "raptus". In Medieval English law the same term could refer to either kidnapping or rape in the modern sense of "sexual violation". (Source: Wikipedia)

In view of the above, would you prefer the term to be rape or sexual assualt/sexual violation?

Also, would you think it to be rape if a man promises a girl marriages, has sex with her, and then doesn't deliver on her promise?
