Muhammad's third wife

Americans fortunately for the most part still strongly disapprove of older men and women dipping into the "much younger generation" for sexual and/or marital purposes. If an American man took for instance, a nine-year-old, to be his wife it would foment outrage in all the major media outlets. It's interesting that the founder of Islam, Muhammad, is given a pass. His third wife, Aishah bint Abu Bakr, was six years old when Muhammad married her, and nine years old when the marriage was consummated. How old was Muhammad at the time? Over 50. Read more on the subject by AbdurRahman R. Squires
in The Young Marriage of 'Aishah."
