Divorce, Saudi Style.

I am not sure but I think you have to say the word “divorce” three times for it to be official.  Hitting the wife with a plate does not count…..but definitely is overlooked.

MADINAH- A Saudi man divorced his wife because she gave a plate of spaghetti to their neighbor.

According to a local newspaper report the husband found out his wife dared to give away food to a non-family member when the neighbor came to return the plate.

Angry about the gross infraction of house rules, the man took the plate and reportedly broke it over his wife’s head.

After assaulting his wife with a piece of flatware, the husband declared an end to their 8-year marriage.

A Madinah court recently finalized the divorce.

Yeah…our friends the Saudis.
