Default Great news from Saudi Arabia!!!

(PS - what did the 'groom' actually get for his money?)

Looks like King Abdullah has been making steps to bring Saudi out of the Middle Ages...solwly, very slowly!

Still, good for them...hope it continues this way!

Yes.............. and at that precise moment, she can decide to divorce him anyway.

Hence my question - what did the guy actually get for his money?

Didn't the story about an 8yo girl marrying an old man hit this Forum some time last year? It sounds very familiar. Glad to see that one small court has supported the girl's position but otherwise I fail to see how anything has been improved. The Saudis are clever at paying lip service to the introduction of so-called regulations. They talked about women being allowed to work and drive years ago but nothing ever happened. Similarly, cinemas were going to be introduced and the result is...nada, zero. More bullshit I fear.
