The woman is a CAPTIVE. There is no assumption needed that the process is non-consensual. "You killed my husband/father/brothers and took me as a prisoner...I'd love to marry you!"<quoted text>
You are insinuating a women taken in captivity and married is a sex slave. I respectfully disagree.Without any consent is your words and those words are not in the bible in reference to this subject. A assumption on your part and not factual.
The law even provides an instant divorce allowed if the woman does not sufficiently PLEASE him. "If you are not pleased with her, let her go wherever she wishes. You must not sell her or treat her as a slave, since you have dishonored her."
If this was a consensual marriage, then why would she be considered dishonored?
This is consistent with other laws like Deut 22:28, where a man's punishment for rape is that he must marry his victim. Do you believe a woman would really want to marry her rapist and continue to have conjugal relations with him?
Or Exodus 21:7, where fathers may sell their daughters as wives (again, no consent involved).
Having an example where the woman is asked does not nullify the examples where the women are clearly not asked.Here we find of an example where the wife to be is asked.
