Egypt may legalize dead-spouse sex, 14-year-old brides [CORRECTION]4/26/2012
CORRECTION: The reports of a proposed sex-after-death law, which originated in a state-run Egyptian newspaper and was widely reported around the world, have since been debunked as false and "complete nonsense" by Egyptian parliamentary officials.
So your wife dies, and, of course, you're all sad and stuff. But a dude has needs, amirite? Good news, Egyptian necromantics, your parliament is considering passage of a law that would allow men to legally engage in pre-casket coitus with their dead wives within six hours of death (after six hours it's just gross). To be fair, the law would let women have sex with their dead husbands, too, but at least one women's group is still outraged, especially since another proposed piece of legislation would allow 14-year-olds to marry. Egypt's National Council for Women is lobbying against both proposed laws.
