I think right and wrong are clear cut, but with good and bad it is more of the perception of the person commiting the act. What I am taught is good may be considered bad in another part of the world. It can also work in the reverse. I was taught that being a teen parent was bad, but my great grandmother who is 66 years older than I was married at 13 and had a child at 15.
