I don't know what you've been reading but the reason he married Aisha was because her father wanted her taken care of. He never consummated the marriage until she was mature (i.e. her menses started) around age 15. Guess what...Mary, the mother of Jesus (peace be upon him), gave birth to Jesus at that same age. In those times it was lawful to marry as soon as a girl was matured. So technically, its not pedophilia. In the 40s and 50s, girls were getting married at 14 some younger...it was lawful to do. Please research completely and know all the facts before saying something that may not be true. Oh and it wasn't 63 wives, it was only 11.
