DMEgyptian 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. 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.

How else do you expect a grief-stricken husband to deal with his loss? By NOT plowing an erect penis into his possibly 14 year-old freshly deceased wife’s lifeless body? What kind of goodbye is that? Not one fit for a married couple, that’s for sure.

Without a doubt there are going to be people opposed to this law for one reason or another (probably the sex with the dead woman part), but it’s not like these guys are just banging any old corpse. This is a very familiar corpse of a person they once loved. Probably had sex while she was sleeping at least once or twice. Same thing, really. And what does she care? She’s dead!

After I die, I want my wife to have to roughest sex with my body possibly. Maybe she should wait for a few days until the rigor mortis sets so I’m hard for her. Either way, I just hope she treats me like an amusement park. Ain’t nothin wrong with taking one last ride.
