I just read this article about Temporary Enjoyment Mariages making a come back in Iraq.
Apparently this sort of thing was banned back when Sadam was in power.
It’s esentially prostitution. $4 up front and all of their monthly expenses until the “marriage” is over. It is certainly an interesting read.
Then there was this other story about a guy who registered for school as a 12 year old. I kept scanning the article and coulnd’t see anywhere that said how tall this guy was. If he was a midget I could see it… but apparently he shaved his body hair and used makeup to con two 60 something year old guys who he was living with into thinking he was a 12 year old (or so they say). I don’t know anyone who could possibly fall for that, but regardless it’s weird in so many ways.
