I'm gonna get a fatwah for this...


Saudi divorces wife for watching male TV host: report

"A Saudi man divorced his wife for watching alone a television programme presented by a male, an act he deemed immoral, the Al Shams newspaper reported on Saturday.

The man, whom the paper did not identify, ended his marriage on the grounds his wife was effectively alone with an unrelated man, which is forbidden under the strict Islamic law enforced in the ultra-conservative kingdom, the paper said.

Men in Saudi Arabia have the authority to divorce their wives without resort to the courts.

You know, there ain't that much difference between this and somebody getting their panties in a twist over homosexuality, or abortion, or whatever else your single issue political clit is.

Lighten the fuck up.

Life is too short for your religious, anal retentive, repressive, supernatural, homo-phobic, alpha-male bullshit. Do what you want (and lie about what you want) in your personal life. But leave the rest of us the fuck alone!

How fucking insecure in your own manhood and your sexual prowess do you have to be to divorce your wife because she watched a TV show hosted by a man she wasn't related to?

Great Googly Moogly! That is like the Fort Knox of limp-dicked insecurity.

Anybody who needs a threat of Divine Retribution from an All Powerfull Entity to keep their wife from straying because she watched a TV show with a man in it has some serious issues.

Maybe if the men over there quit wearing shapeless sack-dresses....


Add a belt. Some sexy shoes. Accessorize!

I'm just sayin'...

Actually they like to control their wives and/or women.

We lost control after we gave women the right to vote.

Yeah...it was the whole letting us speak in public. It was a slippery slope. I disagree though. The sacks add a bit of mystery. Of course i dont like to buy without getting some idea of the merchandise so thats the flip side....

XO I'm surprised at you. You of all people should know that this incident isn't about religion or honor or strict Islamic law or any such bullshit as reported.

This is simply about a guy getting sick of his wife sitting around watching TV all the time while he goes out and busts his bahimah to bring home the humus.

I mean hell, if you could have found an easy way to divorce your first wife, don't you think you would have taken it?

Ha!! That was going to be my comment,Emawkc! What an easy way out.

That woman is fortunate to be free of such an idiot. Unfortunately, I would surmise that the future of a divorced woman living under strict Islamic law is rather bleak.

Loved the touch of humor!

PS- TAG! You've been tagged to play the "evolution of your blog" game. Yes, I know... you are too hip and too suburban to be bothered with something as silly as this. That's what you get for liking my killer amoeba story. ;-)

Wait a minute... Not only is Bob Barker holding a bong, he's holding a crappy bong.

Thanks for shattering the one childhood fantasy that I knew to be true.

Next you'll tell me that all the notes he wrote to me were lies too.

Dream hater.
