I don't understand why Muslim men are so eager to go to 'Jannat' through Jihad and get 72 virgins when they can have whatever they crave for on earth itself! Of course besides this they get the privilege of licking the deity's ass.
The following facts pertain to women and marriage in most of the Islamic world:
1. A man can have four wives
2 A man can divorce his wife in front of the judge without the woman's consent, even without her presence, but a woman cannot divorce a man without his consent.
3 According to some Islamic scholars, a temporary marriage, even for less than HALF AN HOUR, is allowed. [This is what the ISIS is doing to captured women in Syria]
4 According to some scholars, wife beating is allowed. Not all scholars agree, of course.
5 There is no joint property. Only man owns all property.
6 There is no specific minimum age for girls to marry today even 1400 years after Mohammad. In many Islamic countries, Muslims continue to marry underage girls, as young as 10.
7 Although Mohammad advised against it, he proclaimed that men were superior and in-charge ( just as Christianity and Judaism declared) and therefore many Muslims continue to mistreat women as personal property around the world. Christianity and Judaism have made some reforms but Islam deplorably lags behind in this.
" Women are not given the right to instigate divorce because they are prone to emotional and irrational decision making. A husband, however, can divorce his wife at any time he so wishes" -- Ayatollah Ali Moghtadai
No surprise in all this, since all the laws are made by the misogynistic & patriarchal MCPs, aka Sunni Imams or Shiite Ayatollahs!!!
