    I was looking for a forum within which to post this, but there is no forum labeled "Bizarre." I have traveled a lot and appreciate other cultures, but this is twisted:

    Over here, it's called prostitution, which I believe is illegal in Islam? :cool:

    I really dont get why this is so bad.

    Two people agreeing on a contract to be tied together for whatever purpose they design.

    Think of how many people do these same things without drawing up the perameters of their relationship before hand so both partners know why7 and what they have entered into.

    Marriage for a few hours by contract for sex: you "don't get why this is so bad?" You don't get why a government official saying "Temporary marriage is God's rule" is twisted? Look up the word "perverse" in the dictionary and get back to us.

    Like I said, it's an Islamic version of the 'white lie'. Prostitution called 'marriage'.

    I dont think you can legislate religion.

    I think this is better than illegal prostitution.

    You will NEVER stop prositution.

    In prostitution no contract is entered into yet the purchasing of sex still happens.

    Think of how much easier it would be to control sexually transmitted diseases would be with this type of transaction.

    I have known of marriages which were not much more than a prostitution contract and so have you I bet.

    Prostitution is a verbal l contract - an agreement between two or more parties for the doing or not doing of something specified. One party agrees to provide sexual activity. The other party agrees to pay for the sexual activity.
