  1. Because nothing compares to a lifelong commitment of a marriage. You can replace your car, move out of the neighbourhood, find new friends/career etc pretty easily. Sharing your personal space at a highly intimate level with another person for 60 odd years is in another league all together. Children are more of a responsibility and generally not a gamble because you can shape their character and personality from a clean slate. It is virtually impossible to change your spouse in any meaningful way. Of course there is divorce but the process generally drains a lot of years out of a person's life.
  2. You are well intentioned but at the end of the day marriage is still a gamble, by far the biggest gamble of your life.
  3. I wouldn't marry a doctor, it takes a ton of time and commitment.
  4. No reason really other than being in a halal state. I mean you can legally have 100 sexual partners before you settle down in a permanent marriage.
  5. Khadija did this with a much younger man so I don't see why not.
  6. I don't care for the documentary. I know how power works. It doesn't take much to add these things up. I would be utterly shocked if there wasn't sexual exploitation by clerics in power in one form or another. They are human after all.
  7. You are assuming too many things. Who says there would be chaos without the institution of marriage? That just doesn't follow.
  8. I am not against people being together and in relationships. The institution of marriage itself, which is basically a long term contract makes little sense. People can be together without adhering to such contracts.
  9. If you are talking about permanent marriage then it can't be fulfillment of sexual desires. Truth be told, permanent marriage makes little sense, it is an arbitrary long term contract enforced on couples that generally do not know what they are getting into. It simply is not for everyone. The best justification I can come up with is to raise children, it requires a long term commitment from both parties. Beyond that, there isn't much else.
  10. Haven't watched the documentary but I would bet my life sexual exploitation from clerics in power takes place. For anyone to assume otherwise is to be completely ignorant of world history. Furthermore, it isn't that hard to find ways to justify sexual exploitation within Islamic law, especially when it comes to sex slaves.
  11. You people do realize that climate change has potential to cause far more damage than all of the wars, devastating plagues and US/United Kingdom/Israeli aggression combined? It is not a trivial matter. Apart from a possible global nuclear exchange, we have never faced a significant threat at this scale in human history.
  12. Just ask her out. A local pizza joint sounds good, maybe she will even offer to split the bill and you get to enjoy pizza at half price because I doubt she eats much.
