Marriage is a beautiful bond where two people start up a life together and are ready to sacrifice a lot of things and habits just to please their counterparts. The bond of marriage is a strong one, two people tend to live with each other forever, they start a family and a new life.
The high divorce rate in Saudi Arabia
However, it seems like couples don’t have the patience anymore. This is the very reason that Saudi Arabia along with many other Gulf countries like Kuwait and the UAE is suffering from high divorce rates over recent years.
Some Shocking Divorce Cases
Dr. Hani Al Ghamdi, who is a renowned psychoanalyst, briefed that high divorce rates can be attributed to the fact that couples do not understand the importance of their relationship and are unaware of the morals and values that are required to keep up the bond.
- Highlighting certain shocking divorce cases, Ghamdi briefed that recently a husband divorced his wife because he was irritated by the tone of her voice! (shocking it is!).
- Then another case where a newlywed couple went for their honeymoon and returned separated. The reason: wife wore anklets. So wearing an anklet is a crime that is punishable through a divorce?
- Another surprising case where a husband divorced his wife because she walked ahead of him in the mall. Aren’t these cases ridiculous? Well, another case that has been quite famous on social media will surely blow you up.
Divorce for not serving sheep’s head
There was this couple in Saudi Arabia leading a good life. The husband invited some guests and the wife prepared the feast for them. While serving the food to them, the wife forgot to add the sheep’s head.
So when the guests went away, the husband came screaming into the kitchen complaining that she hadn’t added the sheep’s head to the feast and has caused him to suffer from disgrace and embarrassment.
He said that adding the sheep’s head is a gesture of generosity and that the wife had ruined an important event of his life. He divorced her!
People tend to give divorce and then regret, they also become a victim of depression. For instance, in the above-mentioned “sheep head divorce case” the man asked for forgiveness after a few months, yet the wife did not agree because the man had already married another woman. It is better to remain calm and think rationally instead of regretting later!
