Did you know that Aisha was married to Muhammad at 6 and then had sex with\was raped by him at 9? Muhammad was 50+ at the time.
Just thought you should know :]
No. The marriage occurred when she was 9, and she had gone through puberty by that time. In Islam, it is legal to marry a girl who has gone through puberty.
Now you have to remember, this was 1400 years ago. Things have changed obviously from then and now. Girls were married off at a very early age (9-14) during that period, and it happened around the world. It's complete arrogance to ignore this historical fact.
And if you knew anything about Islam, it wasn't the Prophet's physical desire that he married Aisha, it was a divine intervention. Nor she or her parents were against this marriage. It would be rape if he was forceful and she was unwilling.
