Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: agree but....

I have heard that despite Muhammad marrying an older woman, most men plan to just marry one woman and want one that can give them children. They also believe Muhammad wasn't happy until he married Aicha, his much younger wife. They will marry an older woman if there is something to gain.. like Muhammad advised. I met a 21yr old Moroccan guy married to. 43 year old Moroccam woman. Obviously it was a sham marriage because the look on his face when someone mentioned consummating the marriage said it all. They do what they have to do to get a better life. Even if it means marrying a undesirable woman until they can afford a virgin back home. And mention these scams and they all cam instantly tell you at least 3 friends who married Western women and still going strong. They'll never admit to the scam. I put them on the spot.. I said if it's all about love and finding a great wife.. why don't you look for women in other countries besides US, UK, Canada, W. Europe, Australia? None could answer! My ex started going off. I was calm, I said there are many wonderful women in China, Singapore, Korea and you can move their and work. Or how about find a woman in the Gulf States or Indonesia, they are Muslims also. I guess only well off Western women make good wives. Smh
