And the sooner the better," he added with an amused smile, glancing once more, with unmistakable pride and delight, toward her waistline."

I call this the "Wait-a-Minute Moment" - that pivotal instant when girls from traditional cultures start pondering what's in it for them, exactly, to be getting married at the age of thirteen and starting to have babies not long after. They start wondering if they might prefer to make different choices for themselves, or any choices, for that matter. Once girls from closed societies start thinking such thoughts, all hell breaks loose."

When this declaration in its various forms had ceased to shock people sufficiently, she had taken to adding that the man she finally married would be no older than twenty-five.

She didn't suppose they needed to get married to do that, and she knew that she certainly ought to not want to. But did she?"
