Dear Readers,

Four blind men were asked to describe an elephant. One of them feels the trunk & says that elephant is like a snake while the other feels the legs & says that the elephant is like a pillar-the third feels the body & says that elephant is like a wall while the forth feels the hair & says that it is like a thread.

To get a complete picture of any subject-i suppose that thorough study is required. Here i'm discussing about only muta'h marriage.

Muta;h marriages existed since ancient times & i feel that every marriage has its own significance which serves its own section of society & people.

When a man & a woman enters muta marriage-they are the best judge for having entered the muta matrimony. Not every one enters the muta for financial reasons.

They are the best people to know the pros & cons & could be entering the marriage which befits the best of their interests. Both man & woman are highly matured in most cases,mostly...& hoping that the woman would be having her own set of advisors before taking the plunge,probably.

We cannot call muta marriage a form of prostitution cos its a marriage. Any kind of Marriages last for varied years & there is no definition 'cos even normal marriages sometimes last for 3 months orless.

Besides-you will agree that there are numerous web sites where even more dirty things happen like advertising seeking male/male female/female couples/couples relationships etc. Here it is not the case.

If you go to proper web sites,they have clearly put up the procedure of a mutah marriage.

I'm not here to propogate or talk adverse about this subject-but we have to view on a larger perseptive & dimension. Each ones opinion to his own & i do not suggest to subscribe to my opinion.

Readers,pls think to yourselves to conclude.Mutah offers the woman to get out of bad relationship without hazzles & may be if they fall in love it may lead to nikkah. I'm much against one hour or 2 days type marriages as they do not serve purpodse of mental compatibility at all.

best regards/prasad
