A Saudi man divorced his wife just three months after their marriage because she was over-romantic, a newspaper in the Gulf kingdom said on Monday.
The unnamed man acted after he was shocked that his wife has spent a large sum of money on buying candles and other items to make her house look more romantic, the Arabic language daily Sada said.
The husband accused his wife of having illusions after she spent a large sum of money and borrowed SR5,000 from her sister-in-law to buy a big quantity of candles and other items to make her home look more romantic, the paper said.
He then divorced her as he preferred not to have children from a woman who has such illusions, it added without mentioning where the couple lived in Saudi Arabia.
Here I thought it was the religion of LOVE..
He was angry because this was the maid wife, not the concubine wife.
This man may be in trouble if they find out that he is actually gay. That is illegal in Saudi Arabia.
There’s always sheep for the Moslems over there.
I would guess that the guy is gay.
The marriage was just cover.
When do the wives get to stone the husband under sharia law?
She was keeping him from spending quality time with his true love the goat. :-)
Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
If my wife bought over a thousand dollars worth of candles without talking to me, I would be upset too.
Well not in Saudi Arabia anyway. :-)
