in response to reader comment: Tariq --

exactly which muslim sources did you use? Im sure you look honestly, you'll see that the Prophets marriage with Ayesha was nothing to criticise. As hard as might seem for you to believe, that was the situation throughout the world.

but since you wont waste your time finding justification for islam, i'll provide you here even though I prefer not to waste my time commenting on forums. I prefer face to face conversations

1400 years ago it was not uncommon for people to have life expectancy of 40 years, and many used to die in their childhood.
Now, if a person gets married at the age of 25, has children at 27, 29 and 33 years of age and dies by 40, how old are his children? The eldest one is only 13! most often than not, one of them would die, and if its the eldest one, the younger ones, would be only 11 and 9 years old. Who will take care of them?

Now if people started marrying early, which they could for they didnt have college to attend or even high school, life would be easier.

And that is the reason why the prophets MORTAL enemies never criticize him for the marriage
