Salam Alaikum, I have heard many debates on Mutaa being permissable for a woman without having to get her dads consent. I also heard that if the girl is mature, (adult age 18+)and a virgin then she is able to consent to it herself. What are your thoughts?

Answer:

The mature adult woman is independent to take the decision concerning her marriage, according to the jurisprudential opinion of the late Sayyed Fadlullah (ra); however, we do not encourage that out of fear of any negative results that might arise. Moreover, if such marriage harms her, she is not allowed to take such decision of marriage according to the secondary considerations.
