Calling divorce

Calling divorce

A man in Saudi divorced his wife because she answered a phone call from a man who dialed a wrong number.

Kipp found this amazing report on Arab News, which we thought would be a good one to read this weekend.

A 40-year-old man reportedly divorced his wife for answering a telephone call from a man who had called her by mistake. After she received the call, “the husband snatched the phone and shouted at the man who then hung up. The husband then tried ringing the man, but found the phone switched off. The husband then began accusing his wife of having a relationship with the man. In turn, the woman tried to convince him that this was not the case. Unconvinced, the man immediately divorced her and sent her to her parents’ home.”

That is that. You spoke to a man, so you are having an affair. It’s that simple.

For the record, we love the people in Saudi. They give us great stuff to talk about.

    What the hell…. KSA is a world on its own and guess what??? With Dubai’s new laws created overnight…. it’ll soon reach KSA standards…
    Way to go Dubai!!!!

    … and then they complain about not having tourists… the laws the UAE come up with leave so many holes that laws can definitely be bended and/or used for each and everyones interest… and I mean personal interest.

    Good job Dubai… continue through your desperate route… history repeats itself in the Middle East as lessons are never learnt. Money ain’t everything…. and ignorance will always take over one day or another.

    The world sits and smiles while Dubai claims that the rest of the world is jealous of its “success”… no trust me, jealousy has nothing to do with it and i’m suprprised that a leader of a country can come up with infantile justifications such as “jealousy”,,, too bad… honestly… too bad… you could have started from zero ticking each and every countries mistakes done in the past, but instead, fell right on the first trap…

    Good job…
