Is this romantic or pedophile-ish?

In The Tale of Genji (the first novel ever written), the 16 year old Japanese Prince Genji falls in love with an eight year-old girl named Murasaki. Everybody (correctly) tells him she’s way too young for him, so he chastely admires her from afar until she’s 16 and he’s 24. By this time, she likes him back, so they get married.
