Actually, I heard he waited until she was 13...like that makes a difference.

Actually, it would make a difference. If 13 and menstruating, it wouldn't be all that out-of-line with the standards of the day in many parts of the world. But I heard differently. That she was definitely a pre-pubescent child. Maybe I've got the numbers wrong. Married at nine, raped at eleven. Whatever it was, the guy was a pedophile. You don't base a religion on pedophilia. Not without consequences.
I believe she was 6 when he took her as his wife and then 9 when he just took her.
