"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'...
