The point of that temporary marriage example was not to judge it as illiberal/un modern or vice versa. It was an example to demonstrate that in Sunni Islam things that have precedence in times of prophet and companions could be changed. It was in response to your argument about suspension of secondary rulings.

My argument is that there is nothing dramatically different there. Like Deng said it doesn't matter if cat is black or white as long as it eats the mouse
