If the age of consent is 16 in Auldurant, then Arietta is legal

It's implied that age of consent is 20. When the characters are begging for the Lost Celesti, Peony says to 14 year-old Anise, "Just wait until you're six years older, and I'll date you anytime!"

In this case, Arietta will reach the age of consent before Tear does.

No he's got a point. It wouldn't matter if she was like 32, because she looks like a child now, so she'd probably look... Like a normal woman by the time she's 32. <_<

That said, her voice...

No, the point is that she's 16 years old, regardless of what she looks like. That makes her "legal" in jurisdictions where 16 is the age of consent, because the law is not based on what a person looks like.

This reminds me on an article I read about a woman who had to carry her birth certificate around at all times to keep her husband from getting in trouble....

...I was making a joke on how everyone is actually double their age in earth years.

So, no, he can't read.
