This chapter describes a court case in Aintab involving a village girl named Ine whose young life appeared to be troubled by a dangerous domestic situation. It attempts to reconstruct the story of this child bride and her child husband, and suggests that this case is one of various interventions by the local court and the local community to save both the young marriage and the reputation of those involved. The chapter argues that disparities of power in this sixteenth-century community were not unchallenged and that it was Ine's ability to claim her share of social equity from the community that constituted her power.

Keywords:   court case, Aintab, child marriage, local court, social equity
