Aisha was married at six years old.
Debate Rounds (3)
I'm still not sure who she was married to, but seems pretty clear Aisha was married to someone at six years old.
"I am not sure what your argument is. Are you supporting or opposing the arranged marriages of young children?" Bear
My argument is the title. The debate is about whether or not Aisha was married at six years old. Your statement is off topic and thus a red herring. Nevertheless I am extremely opposed to arranged marriages of young children.
This comes from a very credible source.
"Bukhari's collection is recognized by the overwhelming majority of the Muslim world to be one of the most authentic collections of the Sunnah of the Prophet(pbuh)." 
"Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64:
that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death). " 
As you can see the source of my information is the Bukhari's collection. Which is recognized by the overwhelming majority of Muslims to be authentic.
Thanks for the debate.
