Personally I think large age-gap marriages have serious issues due to generational gaps and usually they don't last very long.

It is disturbing that she is/was 16, but legally she is old enough in at least some states. I'd say that they probably should have waited a few years at least.
Now, that being said, I highly doubt the relationship could really be a mature relationship, at least at this time. She is simply too young and he is already showing he'd rather have a trophy wife than a mature (mentally, not necessarily in age) wife in a mature relationship.
It is a pretty good assumption that this is not a healthy relationship (although I'm not saying that this should really make it illegal either, particularly when they are adults). You rarely, if ever, see a mature man with an ugly, homely or even average looking younger woman (with this huge age gap of more than a decade) unless it is some religious thing where there are multiple wives.

Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
