    Yes. But my point is, by our standards Joseph and Mary was a case of pedophilia. Not by their standards, mind you, but ours.

    Well, we don't know when they had sex, if ever...Mary was sort of God's wife afterall (mother of God's son).

    There were temple virgins who stayed virgins throughout life, but married a man as a guardian...meaning, they married, but never had sex.

    Makes ya feel kinda sorry for the husband lol! ;)

    The standards 2000 years ago would be viewed as pedophilia today. If a girl bled, she was to be impregnated as quickly as possible regardless of age. If Aisha bled at 6 years old, then she was considered a woman capable of conception.

    People didn't live so long. And the common practice was this, everyone on the planet did this.

    In certain parts of Indonesia a girl can get married at the age of 12 legally today. It's a perturbing tradition that has persisted for thousands of years here.

    I mean I was offered a daughter of some family here, she was 16 I was 29 at the time, that's WEIRD. okay, but apparently this is still normal.

    Well, some places I've lived, good luck explaining "she bled"...inmates treat such a man like the most disgusting, cowardly, worthless, pathetic, shameful, disgraceful excuses for a human being... I'd prefer to be one of the vermin I fed to my python, then be in their shoes...

    Mary had children after Jesus was born. Jesus had brothers. John 7:5 Matthew 12:46-50

    There are places in the Bible where brother in Hebrew culture means cousin, friend, or follower as well...yes, I'm not saying I know Jesus was an only child...as some claim...but i'm open to possibilities.
