Salam,

There use to be a short contract in the early days of Islam for up to as the Hadith says,

Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah and Salama bin Al-Akwa':

While we were in an army, Allah's Apostle came to us and said, "You have been allowed to do the Mut'a (marriage), so do it." Salama bin Al-Akwa' said: Allah's Apostle's said, "If a man and a woman agree (to marry temporarily), their marriage should last for three nights, and if they like to continue, they can do so; and if they want to separate, they can do so." I do not know whether that was only for us or for all the people in general. Abu Abdullah (Al-Bukhari) said: 'Ali made it clear that the Prophet said, "The Mut'a marriage has been cancelled (made unlawful)." [Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 62 :: Hadith 52]

But afterward it became forbidden to the Muslims and ever since just like these Ahadiths which says,

Narrated Ibn Masud:

We used to fight in the holy battles in the company of the Prophet and we had no wives with us. So we said, "O Allah's Apostle! Shall we get castrated?" The Prophet forbade us to do so. [Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 62 :: Hadith 9]

Narrated 'Ali:

I said to Ibn 'Abbas, "During the battle of Khaibar the Prophet forbade (Nikah) Al-Mut'a and the eating of donkey's meat." [Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 62 :: Hadith 52]

As you can see it was allowed at the early days of Islam but after was forbidden by the Prophet [saws] and there is no one who can make it permissible after the Prophet made it forbidden.

Salam,

Verily for every nation there are but their own test with which Allah will test them with, at the early days the Prophet [saw] and his companions were tested in fighting their own fathers and relatives and were caused to take their own blood relations life's and they've suffered a lot so the religion of Allah would reach us as it is today, therefore, they were allowed certain things just like the short contracts of marriage to take some pressure of because of spreading the religion, but when they were no longer in this pressure and that they were strong and they opened Makka then this was dropped and was made forbidden to them just like the Hadith says,

Narrated 'Ali:

I said to Ibn 'Abbas, "During the battle of Khaibar the Prophet forbade (Nikah) Al-Mut'a and the eating of donkey's meat." [Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 62 :: Hadith 52]

When the Prophet [saw] makes a thing Haram forbidden then there is one who can make it Halal and the Prophet would have made a thing that his nation would need, and as for saying that in our time one may turn to fornication and therefore, needs this short contract is baseless and could cause more harm then good and could destroy a lot of woman that will be left by themselves with so many children to look after, but above all our Prophet [saw] has made it forbidden and there is no going for it, therefore, one must accept the test from Allah and be patient with it until one finds away out and that is to have a proper full marriage contract. Allah knows best.

it is haram. Because islamic marriage is build on love and shairing continuing life till the end not for separating after s/he take what they need from the other. Marriage is holy... Even that marriage which for making it avilable for the ex-wife to remarry her ex-husband after divorce. Marriage isn't a game. w allah a'lam
