Muslim / custom relationship events

Hi all at!

I recently discovered this site (migrated from Geni) and am really loving it.

I think it is great that there is such a long list of events, including things like Bar Mitzahs, Confirmations, etc. It would be really nice, however, if the two main Islamic marriage ceremonies (which are usually held on different days) could be included:

Nikah ( = 'Marriage Contract')
Walima ( = 'Wedding Banquet')

These are universal terms, used by Muslims all around the globe. Also, a 'Marriage Registration' event would be good, as often Muslims will choose to do this on a separate (third) date.

Or, another solution, perhaps easier and more flexible, would be to extend the 'Custom Event' system with the possibility of creating your own custom relationship events as well.

P.S. Other major Islamic rites to add would be Janaza (Funeral Prayer) and Aqiqa (an after birth ceremony, typically held a week after the baby is born).
