Please don't apologise.It is not usually possible to understand something when it has been learnt without its contextual background and historical circumstances and norms of when it occured.I would suggest,that if you have a sincere curiosity and a true need to understand this concept,then with an open mind read about the life of the Prophet (pbuh) and the condition of the society that existed at that time.Some reliable sources include:The Sealed Nectar by S.Al Mubarakpuri, Muhammad,his life based on the earliest sources by Martin Lings and also read ' Our Mother A'isha's Age At The Time Of Her Marriage to The Prophet' on www.qa.sunnipath.com It is much easier to understand something that ordinarily may seem outrageous,when one puts it into the right context and tries to approach it with an open and unbiased mind. Try it,and see if it makes a difference to your understanding!
