agree but....

Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: Against their culture?

Yes, I definitely agree with you. But that's the thing that confuses me, yes their prophet married a much older woman so why is it that a LOT of them target older women strictly from different countries and not their own homeland? My guess is opportunity...the chance at a better life under the guise of being in love. Maybe it's a cultural thing not religious that shuns these types of unions. I hope i'm making sense. I don't ever recall seeing such huge age differences (older woman/younger man) between two Muslims, but I always see the younger muslim man chasing or pretending to fall in love with women old enough to be their mothers.

maybe it's just me though.
