The name of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH)'s wife was Khadijha and she was 40 years old when she got married with Prophet Muhammad. Before marrying to the Prophet Muhammad she was a divorced lady. She hired Prophet Muhammad to accompany her on trade caravan to Syria and other parts of the Arab world. Soon Prophet Muhammad proved himself as a trustworthy, sincere and devoted employee by bringing in more profits and transparency in the trade accounts.
After coming back from trade visit when Prophet Mohammad gave his performance report to the lady who was later on verified by the accompanied trusted servant of Hazrat Kahdija. From this point Prophet Mohammad came into the good books of Hazrat Kahdija and she was pretty much impressed by Prophet Mohammad's attitude. She sent her proposal to Prophet Mohammad which he accepted after consulting it with his Uncle Abu Talib and married her. Prophet Muhammad never married any other woman till she was alive. She was her wife at the time of revelation of Islam and provided him moral and emotional support when he found himself unable to comprehend the message of God revealed to him.
She was a noble lady with high status among Muslim women. Most of the children of the Prophet Mohammad died in their infancies. She was considered to be as one of the richest ladies in Mecca of her time and was actively involved in trade. When God first revealed his verses on Prophet Muhammad, she brought Prophet to his cousin, a Christian monk, who after hearing about the incidence proclaimed the Prophet Hood of Prophet Muhammad.

The name of the first wife of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) was Hazrat Khadeeja (RAA). She was fifteen years older than Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH). She was 40 and Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) was 25, when they got married. I think one can easily use their marriage as a reference while indicating most successful marriages of all time.

She was a very rich and business woman of Mecca. Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) used to do the trading for her. As Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) was an honest person and got confidence of Hazrat Khadeeja in no time, she got impressed with the honesty of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) and she found the best person as life partner in the shape of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH). She was also the first woman to convert to Islam. The marriage life of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) was very successful.

They both struggled for the betterment of Islam together and they conveyed the message of Allah all across Arab especially in Mecca and Medina. Some very important wars were fought during their tenure of marriage. Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) got enormous popularity among the people of Mecca and Medina and a lot of Non-Muslims were converted to Muslims with the help of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) and his team of which his wife Hazrat Khadeeja was an important member.

Prophet Muhammad (saw) had 11 wives, 9 were alive at the time of his death.

1.Hazrat Khadija Bint Khuwaylid, the only wife during his youth.
He married the rest in the following order after Khadija's death. They were all for social reasons (eg. Widow, divorcee). The reason he had more than 4 wives, which is the maximum allowed, is that the verse limiting the number of wives was revealed after his marriages. After the revelation of the verse, he did not marry any more.
2. Hazrat Sawada Bint Zam'a
3. Hazrat A'isha Bint Abu Bakr
4.Hazrat Hafsa Bint 'Umar
5.Hazrat Zaynab Bint Khuzayma
6.Hazrat Ummay Salama Hind Bint Abi Umayya
7.Hazrat Zaynab Bint Jahsh
8.Hazrat Juwayria Bint Al-Haritha

The name of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)'s wife was Hazrat Khadijha. She was a noble lady and she was 40 years of age when Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) got married to her. Hazrat Khadijha has the honor of being the first lady accepted Islam as a religion when her husband Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) asked her and also she is regarded as the Mother of all Muslim Ummah.
Let's take a look about her life before her marriage to Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). Prior to her marriage with Mohammad (PBUH) she was a divorced lady and she was in trade business. She uses to send her trade caravans to the different parts of the world some times these caravans incurred loss and most of the times were earning profits. Now she was in search of a person who was noble, trust worthy as Prophet Mohammad was famous for his these qualities in Mecca, so she hired Prophet Muhammad to lead her trade caravan to Syria and other parts of the Arab world. After coming back to Mecca from their trade visit she took the report from her trustworthy servant who was with Prophet Mohammad during their journey. After hearing the report she was glad and amazed that they earned the higher profits and their all the stuff was sold and soon she realized that Prophet Muhammad has proved himself as a trustworthy, sincere and devoted employee by bringing in more profits and transparency in the trade accounts.
So after the return of their trade visit Hazrat Khadijha proposed Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH) which he later on accepted after discussing it with his dear Uncle Abu Talib and married her.
Hazrat Khadijha proved her self as a true companion and Prophet Muhammad also admired and loved her habits as she was kind hearted, noble and devoted wife. And no other women came into Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) life till Hazrat Khadijha was alive.

The wives of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), the Mothers of the Believers (may Allaah be pleased with them)  www.islam-qa.com  Praise be to Allaah.     The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married the following women:  1 – Khadeejah bint Khuwaylid (may Allaah be pleased with her)  She was the first of his wives. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married her when he was twenty-five years old, and he did not take another wife until after she died. All his children were born from her, except Ibraaheem.  Al-Bukhaari entitled a chapter in his Saheeh: “The marriage of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) to Khadeejah (may Allaah be pleased with her), and her virtues,” in which he narrated a hadeeth from ‘Aa’ishah who said: “I never felt jealous of any of the wives of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) as I did of Khadeejah, although she died before he married me, because of what I heard him say about her.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 3815.  2 – Sawdah bint Zam’ah ibn Qays  The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married her in the tenth year of his Prophethood. Tabaqaat Ibn Sa’d, narrating from al-Waaqidi, 8/52-53; Ibn Katheer in al-Bidaayah wa’l-Nihaayah, 3/149  3 – ‘Aa’ishah bint Abi Bakr al-Siddeeq (may Allaah be pleased with her)  The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married her in Shawwaal of the tenth year of the Prophethood. Ibn Sa’d, 8/58-59. She herself said: “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married me when I was six years old, and consummated the marriage with me when I was nine.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 3894; Muslim, 1422. Al-Bukhaari (5077) also narrated that the Messenger of Allaah (S) (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not marry any virgin apart form her.  4 – Hafsah bint ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with her)  It was narrated from ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) that Hafsah’s husband Khunays ibn Hudhaafah, who was one of the companions of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and had been present at Badr, died in Madeenah. ‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab said: I met ‘Uthmaan ibn ‘Affaan and offered Hafsah to him in marriage. I said: If you wish, I will marry Hafsah bint ‘Umar to you. He said: I will think about it. Several nights passed, then he said: I think that I do not want to get married at this time. ‘Umar said: Then I met Abu Bakr and I said: If you wish, I will marry Hafsah bint ‘Umar to you. Abu Bakr kept quiet and did not give me any response. I was more upset about him than about ‘Uthmaan. Several nights passed, then the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) proposed to her and I married her to him. Then Abu Bakr met me and said: Perhaps you felt upset when you offered Hafsah in marriage to me and I did not reply? I said: Yes. He said: Nothing prevented me from responding to your offer but the fact that I knew that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) had mentioned her, and I did not want to disclose the secret of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). If he had decided not to marry her, I would have accepted your offer.  Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 4005.  5 – Zaynab bint Khuzaymah (may Allaah be pleased with her)  The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married her in Ramadaan, thirty-one months after the Hijrah. Tabaqaat Ibn Sa’d, 8/115  6 – Umm Salamah bint Abi Umayyah (may Allaah be pleased with her)  Muslim (918) narrated that Umm Salamah (may Allaah be pleased with her) said:  I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) say: “There is no person who is faced with a calamity and says Inna Lillaahi wa inna ilayhi raaji’oon, Allaahumma ujurni fi museebati w'ukhluf li khayran minha (Truly, to Allaah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return; O Allaah, reward me in this calamity and compensate me with something better than it) but Allaah will reward him in his calamity and will compensate him with something better than that.” She said: When Abu Salamah died, I said what the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) had commanded me, and Allaah compensated me with someone better than him: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).  According to another report: When Abu Salamah died, I said: Who is better than Abu Salamah, the companion of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)? But Allaah decreed that I should say it. Then I got married to the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).  7 – Juwayriyah bint al-Haarith (may Allaah be pleased with her)  She fell prisoner to the Muslims during the battle of Banu’l-Mustalaq, and she came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) to ask him to help her to manumit herself and buy her freedom. He offered to buy her freedom and marry her, and she accepted. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married her and made her manumission her dowry. When the people came to know of that, they set free their own prisoners, so as to honour the in-laws of the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). No woman brought a greater blessing to her people than she did. Narrated by Ibn Ishaaq with a hasan isnaad. Seerat Ibn Hishaam, 3/408-409.  8 – Zaynab bint Jahsh (may Allaah be pleased with her)  Concerning her Allaah revealed the words (interpretation of the meaning):  “So when Zayd had accomplished his desire from her (i.e. Divorced her), We gave her to you in marriage, so that (in future) there may be no difficulty to the believers in respect of (the marriage of) the wives of their adopted sons when the latter have no desire to keep them (i.e. They have divorced them)”  [al-Ahzaab 33:37]  She used to boast about this to the other wives of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), saying: “Your families arranged your marriages but Allaah arranged my marriage from above the seven heavens.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 7420.  9 – Umm Habeebah bint Abi Sufyaan (may Allaah be pleased with her):  Abu Dawood (2107) narrated from ‘Urwah from Umm Habeebah (may Allaah be pleased with her) that she was married to ‘Ubayd-Allaah ibn Jahsh, who died in Abyssinia. Then the Negus married her to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and gave her a mahr of four thousand on his behalf, and sent her to the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) with Shurahbeel ibn Hasanah. Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani.  10- Maymoonah bint al-Haarith (may Allaah be pleased with her)  It was narrated from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married Maymoonah when he was in ihraam. Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1832; Muslim, 1410.  The words “when he was in ihraam” are a mistake. In fact the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married her after he exited ihraam following ‘Umrat al-Qada’.  See Zaad al-Ma’aad, 1/113; Fath al-Baari, hadeeth no. 5114.  11 – Safiyyah bint Huyayy ibn Akhtab (may Allaah be pleased with her)  The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) set her free and married her after the battle of Khaybar. Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 371.  These are the wives of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) with whom he consummated marriage. Two of them died during the lifetime of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), namely Khadeejah and Zaynab bint Khuzaymah (may Allaah be pleased with them both). The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) left behind nine wives when he died; there is no difference of scholarly opinion on this matter.    See Zaad al-Ma’aad, 1/105-114  It was said that Rayhaanah bint ‘Amr al-Nadariyyah (or al-Quraziyyah) was also one of his wives. She was taken prisoner during the battle of Bani Qurayzah, and the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) chose her for himself and married her, then he divorced her then took her back. Tabaqaat Ibn Sa’d , narrating from al-Waaqidi, 8/130  And it was said that she was a concubine. This was regarded as more likely by Ibn al-Qayyim in Zaad al-Ma’aad    also check this, www.islam-qa.com

Our beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad's (P.B.you.H) first wife name was Khadeejah-Bint-Khuwaylid. She was born in the year 68 B.H to Khuwaylid-bin-Asad and Faatimah-Bint-Za'idah. She was raised on commendable characteristics and was very well known due to her intelligence.

She was a very successful businesswoman. When she heard of Muhammad's impressive credentials, she asked Muhammad (P.B.you.H) to take some of her merchandise for trade purpose to Syria. She was very impressed by the honesty of Muhammad (P.B.you.H) She was widow at that time  and her age was forty .She proposed to Muhammad (P.B.you.H) for marriage through a relative. At that time Muhammad (P.B.you.H) was twenty five years old. Muhammad (P.B.you.H) accepted the proposal.

Khadeejah (ra) and Muhammad (P.B.you.H) were the parents of six children and when our Prophet(P.B.you.H) received Prophet hood, She was the first one to believe in Allah and His messenger Muhammad(P.B.you.H). She was always there to support our Prophet. Our Prophet (P.B.you.H) loved her a lot. Muhammad (P.B.you.H) never used to leave the house without mentioning Khadeejah.

Khadeejah, the mother of the believers, died helping the Prophet(P.B.you.H) to spread the message of God. She died three years before the migration to Madina at the age of sixty five. The Prophet (PUBH) buried her with his own hands. Her death was a great loss for the Prophet (P.B.you.H).

Definitely Hazrat Khadijah. She was the first (until she died the prophet didn't get marry to anyone.) Extra information: When they got married the Prophet(peace be upon him) was 25 and she was 40 years old. When she died the Prophet(pbuh) was around mid-40s(44-46 not sure).They had many kids(6) from that very happy marriage. After many years of Hazrat Khadijah's death, he made a series of marriages from a variety range of ages, cultures, ethnicities, countries, tribes and social positions. All occurred in the last 5-10 years of his prophethood (which lasted 23 years in total). They were all for spreading Islam to different communities and regions. The most obvious proof of it was he had only one kid (Ibrahim) from this many marriages. So they weren't for pleasure(that's what the orientalists claim ) but for strategical reasons. He used his marriage relations very strategically to reach different communities easily
