Wife of adopted son and not his own son. Prophet had just one Son Ibrahim and he died at an early age - anyway adoption was prevalent before but later on when Ilsam came it abolished those forms of adoption .
I think nambiar u r getting wrong infoo from anto islamic websites - it's just i enquiring about u from yuor enemies and not friends about yuor nature and character -Prophet did not force rather tried his best to reconcile the marriage - that's the truth -thanks
