Free Love Islamic Style

Prostitution was banned in Iran after the 1979 Islamic revolution but has increased in recent years. Iran's hard-line interior minister is encouraging temporary marriages as a way to avoid extramarital sex, a stance many in this conservative country fear would instead encourage prostitution.

A temporary marriage, or "sigheh," refers to a Shiite Muslim tradition under which a man and a woman sign a contract that allows them to be "married" for any length of time, even a few hours. An exchange of money, as a sort of dowry, is often involved.
We should consider instituting this practice to regulate Canadian courting rituals. All of the love with none of the headache, ladies. And as for convincing the men in power, it is a cheaper solution than prisons. Think about it fellas.
