This Shia practice that allows a man and a woman to legally marry for a fixed period of time, anything ranging from one hour to 99 years. Is this religiously sanctified prostitution or a loophole for couples to have a relationship within the rigid Islamic laws? Within these personal stories, religious dogma meets macho sentimentality meets female pragmatism.
