pederastic marriage:

In anthropology, a temporary marriage between an adolescent male of 12 to 18 years of age and an adult male. Pederastic marriages have been reported in the Egyptian oasis of Siwa early in this century and among the Australian Nambutji, where young men become the boy-wife of the man who performed their circumcision and subincision during initiation.
