Woman With Two Husbands Arrested
Emirates 24/7 ^ | Sunday, February 26, 2012

Posted on 02/26/2012 5:39:52 PM PST by nickcarraway

Saudi Arabia’s religious police arrested a woman for having two husbands at the same time and also practising sorcery, a newspaper reported on Saturday.

Members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice trapped the woman after receiving a tip off that she had two husbands in two cities at the same time, 'Kabar' Arabic language daily said.

After arresting her, she confessed to practicing sorcery and having two husbands in the capital Riyadh and the western town of Madina. The paper did not say if the two husbands know they are married to the same woman.

Under Islam, a woman is allowed to have one husband at a time but men can have four wives at a time.

Since women are not allowed to drive or go outside without a male relative... In Saudi .....Just how do she manage to be married to two different men?

Maybe she was a witch / S

Might have escaped the stoning for having two husbands, but the sorcery bit ensured her the stoning pit.

Saudi Arabia has issues with hanging wives, women whose husbands do not support them but do not divorce them. She could have married anew and the old guy didn’t know or care until officials found out.
Or she could be the secret second wife of each man, only seeing them when they were in town. They wouldn’t know, but she’d get money from both.

But Husbands-in-law!
But we’ll never-
Have a rift!
As long as we-
Work on a different shift!”

I love the SAudis, Pakistanis and Afghanis. They provide us with a real-time glimpse of life in the 12th Century.

Historians now understand why the atomic bomb was invented.

If she had magic that worked, do they think they would even have noticed her?

Hey, they said she was practicing sorcery. I guess she should have practiced more.
