Temporary marriage and Coitus inturrupt in Islam - Zakir Naik
Is "Temporary Marriage" Worth A Try?
There's a movement afoot in Mexico City to legalize "temporary marriages". These marriages would be contracted for a two year period, at the end of which the couple can choose to extend for a lifetime or go their own separate ways without all the legal entanglements of a typical marriage. In a country where half of all divorces occur in the first two years, it makes a certain sense. Of course, the proposal has met with a lot of resistance, which should come as no surprise in this heavily Catholic nation.
Temporary marriages are not a new thing at all – in the middle ages (and the custom still lingers today in certain groups), some couples practiced "handfasting", pledging themselves for a year and a day. Back then, this usually favored the man – if he wanted to trade in his bride, he simply returned her to her parents at the end of the handfasting. In most cases her odds of making a good marriage afterward were greatly diminished while her husband simply found himself a new bride to try out.
And while it might not be a bad idea to give people who marry in haste a chance to "un-do", playing musical marriages is no way to have a mature relationship. There's something to be said for commitment, to sticking it through, to you-and-me-no-matter-what. The kind of growth you get personally from learning to grow together (instead of splitting apart every couple of years and trying again) is invaluable, and really changes you as a person, I think.
