A Saudi man studying in the United States married a girl in the Gulf Kingdom through the advanced Skype video communication system and a newspaper said it was the first Skype marriage to be performed in the conservative Gulf Kingdom.
Sheikh Fawaz Al Nafeei conducted the marriage rites at the brides home in the western Saudi town of Kharma after getting approval from the couples families and the groom through Skype, Okaz Arabic language daily said.
At first I was surprised when they asked me to consummate the marriage this way but then I agreed because it does not contradict with Sharia (Islamic law), Nafeei said.
The paper said the marriage of Ayed Al Subaei was the first in Saudi Arabia to be performed through Skype.
How they gonna consumate? Sexting?
Just goes to show Saudi Arabia is the most advanced, forward-thinking country in the world.
There is an app for that...
And next month she will receive a tweet that says
ID4CU ID4CU ID4CU (I divorce you I divorce you I divorce you)
Who’s the lucky goat?
