Was Ayesha really a child bride?

Dear brother Joseph Islam,

I really liked your article, WAS AYESHA REALLY A CHILD BRIDE? - MARRIAGEABLE AGE FROM THE QURAN, especially your explanation regarding marriageable age from Quran.   It was highly focused and with great intelligence!

Additionally, we cannot take hadiths as a source of evidence in this regard, because even prophet’s stay in Mecca is differently reported in hadiths as 10 years, 13 years & 15 years.

Bukhari Volume 7, Book 72, Number 787:  Narrated Anas bin Malik:

The Prophet was neither conspicuously tall, nor short; neither, very white, nor tawny. His hair was neither much curled, nor very straight. Allah sent him (as an Apostle) at the age of forty (and after that) he stayed for ten years in Mecca, and for ten more years in Medina. Allah took him unto Him at the age of sixty, and he scarcely had ten white hairs on his head and in his beard.

Bukhari Volume 5, Book 58, Number 190: Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
Allah's Apostle was inspired Divinely at the age of forty. Then he stayed in Mecca for thirteen years, and then was ordered to migrate, and he migrated to Medina and stayed there for ten years and then died

Muslim Book 030, Number 5809:
Ibn 'Abbas reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) stayed in Mecca for fifteen years (after his advent as a Prophet) and he heard the voice of Gabriel and saw his radiance for seven years but did not see any visible form, and then received revelation for ten years, and he stayed in Medina for ten years.
