“I want to make it clear. I am not the type of woman who wishes to remarry. As it happens, people that I met happened to have a strong desire to marry,” she said.

Could we possibly have some kind of decency here? Kakehi-san has not yet been found guilty of any crime, so surely she should be granted the right to remain innocent until proven guilty?
