Please read the history of China and you would discover that chinese in the olden days might have engaged the marriage of the children and even worse, some children had not yet been born and yet their parents might have engaged their marriage with their neighbour's children and it ended up that children that were born were forced to married with the dead or even worse, to be married with one year old kid.

Currently I am working in a company and there is an Indian from India told me that Indians in India now still accepts engagements for children with the agreement of their parents with their relatives. Their children have been engaged to marry with the children of their relatives due to the consent of parents. Do you know this kind of marriage is not acceptable to any modern families since children are forced to have their future partners to be so and so. What if these children would have died earlier, the other children to whom they have been engaging with might become singly.

You find Muhammad married with 6 years old kid is a kind of fool. However, you have to know the traditional practice in ancient days and that these practice might be acceptable to them at that moment of time.

The same is for marriage. To modern muslims and you, marriage to more than three wives is considered to be bad since the man is not sincere to his wife. However, in history, this kind of marriage was acceptable in China, India and any countries since I have browsed through many books in regard of history and I have found they all mention that.

For Indians in India, they allow their children to marry with their cousins, or nephews, or niece, or any people with very close blood relationship. Do you know that we, moderate muslims, do mix around and make friends with chinese and other races and I discover that chinese people curse those people that marry to their relatives that have very close blood relationship to be beasts since they could not accept this kind of marriage. Chinese believe that this kind of marriage might cause their children or their grand children or their great grand children to be abnormal or mentally retarded. Please kindly check it out from any chinese friends you have and you would know it is true.
