Saudi woman have been blamed more than men for the high divorce rate in the Gulf Kingdom and one of the main reasons is their disobedience.
A study issued this week by a local legal centre showed there are 11 key reasons for the surge in divorces in the worlds largest oil exporter.
Six of them are related to women and four to men while the 11th reason has to do with the couples families and their interference in their marital life, showed the study by the Riyadh-based consultancy Centre for Legal Training.
One of the main reasons for the high divorce in Saudi Arabia is the wifes failure to fully perform her duties towards her husband, her going out without her husbands permission and non-respect of him.
These things normally lead the husband to hate his wife and push him to divorce her, the study said.
It also blamed husbands who abuse their wives, fail to perform their duty towards them and support the family, addiction to liquor or drugs and going out late night.
Another important reason is that the interference by families in the couples affairs and the fact that many women are forced by their families to marry men they do not know.
Saudi Arabia has one of the worlds highest divorce rates, recording an average one divorce case every half an hour in 2012, when they totaled 18,765.
According to a recent official study, the divorce cases were more than 35 per cent of the marriages. This is far above the international rate of between 18 and 22 per cent. In some years, it exceeded 40 per cent in the Kingdom, the study said.
Why, it’s almost as if Saudi men are American. Or Saudi women are American. Or something like that. You know.
Oh, yeah, right. No such thing as decongestants in Saudi Arabia?
It sounds like this is a mutually-agreed-upon acceptable excuse.
I always was interested in the Arab tourists in London summers. There would be the guy with his wife and two kids. The kids would be in the nice western kid outfits, good quality and well dressed. The guy would be in expensive jogging outfits with lots of western jewelry and watches that cost 600 to 6000. Sometimes even in shorts. The wife would be in full Muslim garb head to toe with the impression that a heat stroke was going to hit her at any moment.
A pack mule would have been shown more consideration.
Saudi women are blamed for everything
someone got short-burqa’d.
Disobedience? Going out without husband’s approval? What is wrong with these women? LOL
What woman in her right mind would marry a Muslim man? They are the lowest form of humanity.
New twist for the old paper bag trick.
failure to fully perform her duties towards her husband, her going out without her husbands permission
In other words, not being a good slave.
