Mut`ah Marriage in the southern suburbs in Beirut

A Lebanese academic who does not want to be identified sent me this about that ridiculous story about temporary marriage in the southern suburbs in Beirut: "Ridiculous. I mean I lived in Dahia all my life (Hayy al-sellum and later haret hriek)and never got to hear these stories except from people who are very foreign to the place (both Lebanese and Westerners). But even so, whatever happens there is to be criticized: whether sex was allowed, encouraged, banned or discouraged. It sucks."
