When following the news from Iran, it is often hard to tell the difference between a news story and a really good joke. The latest story on the Islamically correct lifestyle, according to the Iranian government, involves a study that found that young Iranians were having sex, even homosexual sex, in rising numbers. The 82-page report, issued by Iran’s parliamentary research branch, is alarmed at the findings and recommends that the government push for the use of “temporary” marriages that may last no longer then the tryst itself. It is something akin to a Vegas marriage for good Muslims. Marry, have sex, and then divorce. You are happy. The Mullah is happy. Everyone is happy.
The report found that a surprising 80 percent of females acknowledged having premarital sex. These women admitted to entering romantic relationships as early as middle school and, perhaps the most surprising of all, 17 percent of all respondents identified as homosexual. You have to remember that two-thirds of the population of Iran is under the age of 35.
The solution to premarital sex? The sigheh. No, not a sigh after sex. A sigheh before sex. It is a temporary marriage that can last anywhere from one tryst to years. Under the Sharia law followed in Iran, a Muslim man can have up to four legal wives. However, you can have up to 99 of the temporary marriages. So the way to get rid of premarital sex is to make it marital sex. Problem solved. Sigh.
The problem is that some women complain that they have been forced into a sigheh, which can be a cover for a type of Islamically-correct form of prostitution.
However, the mullahs of Iran are more concerned about converting defiant sex into devout sex for the millions of young Iranians. Same one-night stand of course but we can call it a one-night marriage.
