The Maldives has a divorce rate of 11 divorces per 1000 people per year -- the highest in the world. By comparison, the US (third highest divorce rate) has 4 divorces per 1000 per year. Why so many divorces in the Maldives?

"The short answer is that the bikini-packed Maldives is actually a Muslim country, and that means there is a great stigma against premarital sex. Which leads a lot of teed-up 18-year-olds to suddenly see marriage as maybe the best idea ever."

Ah, sounds like Mormon culture.

However, divorce is easy in Muslim cultures. So...

Here's the article about this.

The Maldives might also have time-limited marriages, since these are common in certain Muslim countries like Iran.

A time-limited marriage is where two people get married for ONLY a specified time: could be one day, or one week, or a month...or whatever they need to go on a vacation to Europe or wherever. During that time, they are a married couple, so they can have sex without running afoul of the civil laws which are often draconian about non-marital sex.

Although the ages of the people involved can be "anything" so long as those people are legally allowed to get married, I have read that this is particularly prevalent with widows and "regular" (they meant their prior marriage(s) to be lasting) divorcees.

If the Maldives has time-limited marriages, then it means nothing more than ordinary, dating American couples having a relationship with each other which includes sex.

That Sharia divorce loop-hole allows Muslim men to engage in prostitution, because they are "married" (wink, wink; nudge, nudge) to the sex worker at the time. LDS and Islam have so much in common, such as legalism.

I've always thought that prostitution is legal in Islam.

Isn't it?

I agree with you about the legalism of both the LDS Church and Islam, however. The same is true for Ultra-Orthodox Jews as well.

That is a myth. To get a divorce in Nevada you have to be a resident for at least 45 days prior to the divorce. I don't know of any BYU student who is willing to do a legal stay in Nevada for 45 days and do the paperwork and pay the fees to get a divorce.

The Islamic Mutta marriage (time limited marriage) is - IIRC - predominantly shiite, and is limited to a few Islamic countries, where Shia dominates.

of course, divorce is relatively easy in most Islamic states. To divorce a woman, a man simply has to say 'I divorce you' (in arabic) three times and the divorce is considered permanent

A woman can say it a hundred times and she's still married. A woman's right to initiate a divorce must be stated in the marriage contract or approved by a judge.

Orgasms are good.

Laws, mores, regulations, etc. that discourage or restrict or prohibit orgasms are among humankind's stupidest self-imposed scourges, IMO.
