Patriarchal

 

According to Islamic Law, Temporary - or Sigheh - Marriage lasts for any prearranged time, from a few minutes to few days or weeks. It is usually not registered, as a normal marriage would have to be. The 'husband' must specify a dowry in the contract. He can have as many Sigheh marriages as he like, and he can end them at any time, leaving the women with no power. Various organizations in Iran invite all believing females age 12 - 35 to participate. Each 'Moslem sister' is under contract to perform services 25 days each month. Critics insist this ti merely a cover for legalized prostitution.

The way of Love is not subtle argument.

The door there is devastation.

Birds make great sky-circles of their freedom.

How do they learn it?

They fall, by falling, They are given wings.
