Why did the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) marry many wives?

Have you ever wondered why the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) married many wives? Some anti-Muslim writers claim it was out of lust. In reality, he was monogamous and faithful to one women (Khadija, may Allah be pleased with her) for most of his adult life. After she passed away, he stayed single out of grief for two years. In the last eight years of his life he married several women for social and political reasons, including to cement relationships, unite tribes, and pass on the details of his personal habits.
