sorry !

Look at the following reality: http://www.sex-in-islam.com/islam-sex/Mutah-Temporary-Islamic-Marriage-Muslims.htm

Mutah marriage is temporary and remains valid only for a few weeks, days, or hours. It is, therefore, simply a kind of prostitution in the garb of marriage. The fabulously rich, mostly aged, Arabs from the Gulf countries come to India, get access to young girls of Hyderabad through mutah—of course, by paying fat cash to their parents as dowry (mehr). They use those young girls as a piece of toilet paper; and return home as the marriage automatically dissolves after the stipulated time. Below is one such case.

In May 2004, an old man, named Muhammad Zafer Yaqub Hassan al Jorani, came from Sharjah to Hyderabad—the capital of Andhra Pradesh—to undergo a cataract operation. On May 7, he married Haseena Begum—a 19 year old girl; and after two days, he divorced her. On May 24, he married another 16 year old girl Ruksana Begum. Haseena—ignoring threat to her life—went to a local police station to narrate her story and within an hour police arrested Jorani. Police also arrested someone called Shamsuddin who allegedly had played a mediator and received a cash of Rs 40,000 from Jorani paying Haseena's parents as mehr. To be noted that Jorani had two wives and 11 children at Sharjah.

By interrogating Jorani, police could discover that Jorani also divorced Ruksana after a few days, and married a third girl. But neither Ruksana nor the third girl dared report their affairs to the police, and no steps could be taken for those offences.
