Mr Heather,

Wish to you. I'm curious about your comment that you are disturbed why Muhamed PBUH married Ayiesha at very young age of 6. I tell you the truth. When you study about your ancestor's life about 1500 years ago, you will know that it's been very common happenings. History will delineate that polygamy was practiced by most men and even illustrious prophets (you refer Bible and Deuteronomy) also does same before arise of Prophet Mohamed (PBUH). But now we are in living modern world we feel embarrass of this practice. I feel when person wish to go for other girl, he should get consent from previous wife (considering wealth and health, Islam does not encourage to marry women for lust.) and must lead equitable living to all wife without discriminating.

It's not matter of Polygamy, it's matter of fear in GOD to serve and submit to him sincere and honest.
