I might have gotten the age wrong, as I didn't bother to check Wikipedia before I wrote this, but I think the gist of what I am trying to say is the same. 4, 6, or 9; she was still what we consider to be a child, and outlawing child marriages is a condemnation of his actions. I don't care when they consummated their marriage - that is besides the point.

And likeitis, I'm not passing judgement as to the happiness of Aisha in her marriage, that really doesn't matter for the point I am trying to make.

You guys have no sense of reality about the situation here. The woman is obviously doing her best, but what are her ex-husbands doing? Do you know how many ex-husbands refuse to pay up even when they have the money? If you allot blame by saying, "she could have conceived of this happening", then yes she is guilty, because Japan is certainly still an unfair place to be for a woman. But it is her right to take the chance that her husbands won't be abusive and that the economy won't suddenly fail, and have a child if she wishes. That's a chance everyone takes.
