Outrage At Egypt’s ‘Farewell Intercourse Law’

Update: There is no confirmation for the allegations in this story that a law will be passed. Evidently, at some point in the past few years, a cleric from Morocco did approve [or may have approved] of the practice, but that is where facts seem to end. Check out this link, from Terri Redor [in comments below] for the real story.

Andrew Sullivan – The Dish

Egyptian husbands will soon be legally allowed to have sex with their dead wives – for up to six hours after their death.

The controversial new law is part of a raft of measures being introduced by the Islamist-dominated parliament.

It will also see the minimum age of marriage lowered to 14 and the ridding of women’s rights of getting education and employment.

Controversial: The 'farewell intercourse' law is part of a raft of measures being introduced by the Islamist-dominated parliament.

Egypt’s National Council for Women is campaigning against the changes, saying that ‘marginalising and undermining the status of women would negatively affect the country’s human development’.

Dr Mervat al-Talawi, head of the NCW, wrote to the Egyptian People’s Assembly Speaker Dr Saad al-Katatni addressing her concerns.

Egyptian journalist Amro Abdul Samea reported in the al-Ahram newspaper that Talawi complained about the legislations which are being introduced under ‘alleged religious interpretations’.

The subject of a husband having sex with his dead wife arose in May 2011 when Moroccan cleric Zamzami Abdul Bari said marriage remains valid even after death.

He also said that women have the right to have sex with her dead husband, alarabiya.net reported.

It seems the topic, which has sparked outrage, has now been picked up on by Egypt’s politicians.

TV anchor Jaber al-Qarmouty slammed the notion of letting a husband have sex with his wife after her death under the so-called ‘Farewell Intercourse’ draft law.

He said: ‘This is very serious. Could the panel that will draft the Egyptian constitution possibly discuss such issues? Did Abdul Samea see by his own eyes the text of the message sent by Talawi to Katatni?

‘This is unbelievable. It is a catastrophe to give the husband such a right! Has the Islamic trend reached that far? Is there really a draft law in this regard? Are there people thinking in this manner?’

DAMN! I was hoping it granted the guy one last crack after the divorce papers were signed. That would really make divorce worth the money. One final hate fuck, mmmmmmm, what I’d pay for that.

I’m surprised the time limit is 6 hrs, figure with that heat, body gonna bloat and stink quick. And really, a human corpse isn’t that big of a leap from a live goat or camel.

If you wanna pull it, go ahead, but I don’t dig the “we” thing. I been a party to a few cluster fucks, and an occasional shit storm, but I’ve managed to steer clear of circle jerks.

I don’t know, maybe I’m not as sexually evolved as some around here. I like to keep my pulling it confined to the toilet, shower or bed. I even stopped doing it while driving. That was years ago though.
