Bukhari 5245

I was with Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) in a Ghazwa, and when we returned, I wanted to hurry, while riding a slow camel. A rider came behind me. I looked back and saw that the rider was Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) . He said (to me), "What makes you in such a hurry?" I replied, "I am newly married." He said, "Did you marry a virgin or a matron?" I replied, "(Not a virgin but) a matron." He said, "Why didn't you marry a young girl with whom you could play and who could play with you?" Then when we approached (Medina) and were going to enter (it), the Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Wait till you enter (your homes) at night (in the first part of the night) so that the ladies with unkempt hair may comb their hair, and those whose husbands have been absent (for a long time) may shave their pubic hair."

It is one thing to give a mere opinion, and it's entirely a different thing to prohibit something.  Islam doesn't prohibit marriage with divorced women.  Also, the context is not clear as to why the Prophet, peace be upon him, said it to that man, or if there was a growing trend among the society of that time that prompted the Prophet to say it.

Here is something that is clear though:  Women with strings attached to them are poisonous.  Her previous boyfriend still lingering around the corner, or is still texting her, or they still meet when she's outside walking, or he is still not "un-friended" from the social media account will make the marriage poisoned.  And if she had children from a previous marriage or relationship, then this former man will always be part of their life together.  A virgin who is all yours for life doesn't have that baggage.   And I am 100% in agreement that men who have never been married before should marry virgin women.  It will mean the world to him when he takes her virginity all to himself, and he becomes everything to her.  The sun will only rise and set on him according to her.  It would linger in his heart that he wished he had married a virgin when he got married if she wasn't. 

So yes, I agree with the Prophet that fresh men should marry virgins.  Women with baggage attached to them (children from previous marriages) can be married to older men, especially to those who have experienced marriage before and already have grown children, not to fresh young men who never experienced marriage before.

That's my opinion.  Welcome to the board.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

And I second your opinion Akhi.
