Default 2 wives? Only for a month? Could be expensive!

A married Emirati businessman who had a second wife after she rejected his bid for a relationship ended up paying Dh1 million, a luxury car and an apartment just a month after he divorced her, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

The unnamed man, who already has a national wife and children, met the new Arab woman and decided to have an affair with her, but she insisted that he marries her.
Although he quickly agreed, she again insisted on having guarantees that he would not abandon her since he is married.
Her conditions were that he must give her an apartment in her name at a freehold residential area in the UAE, a luxury car of her own choice and a post-dated cheque of Dh1 million to be paid in case he divorces her.

Just after their return to the UAE a few days later, she started to put pressure on him to divorce her in a bid to have the Dh1 million.
Angered by his refusal, she threatened to tell his wife and relatives about his marriage, but he still would not divorce the woman as he thought she was bluffing.
“Once he was with her and stopped his car to pray at a mosque. She picked his mobile phone and found his first wife’s number. She called her and told her about her husband’s second marriage and that she is his second wife,” the paper said. It said that after a few days, the man decided to divorce that woman and filed a suit at the civil court to recover the car, the flat and the cheque.
“The court ruled in favour of the divorced woman and ordered the man to pay the money to his ex-wife. An appeals court upheld that sentence,” the paper said.

Agreed, unless there's rather more to it. Given the region, it could be crap reporting, absolute fact or somewhere in between. I bet she was well built.

It is the custom for some local guys to 'propose marriage' to a woman that he fancies... that way, he bypasses the whole "sex outside of marriage" thing.
Then ..when they get bored with the 'current wife' they just divorce her and move on.
All this girl did was secure her future.

Fair play, he wanted it, he agreed in advance the "contract", she enforced the "contract" in a court of law.

As a man that we know is studying the law - what's your problem with this outcome?

He says "no, don't worry..I will look after you"

She says.."Yeah..right..heard that before. You have to marry me and promise to provide for me"
He says.. "Ok whatever you want"
Nothing wrong with that darling... what is the basis of most marriages in the Middle East... it isn't love... most marriages are arranged, most couples only get to see each other on the wedding day..money passes hands..dowry etc.. the divorce rate is high. Good for her I say.

The "Wife" is nothing more than a common prostitute.

She gave the guy a price, he accepted it. Agreed he shouldn't have taken it to court but shouldn't the hooker (as that is what she is) not have called wife 1.

Or maybe it was her plan to cash the cheque.

Scheming manipulative whore. End of.

I’d come across a non-Muslim version of a similar story enacted by a very pretty Russian woman who did a similar thing to a very rich British celebrity guy, I actually forgot his name. Basically she met him in a party and in that party she managed to seduce him and got him to have a casual sex with her in a standing position (according to her) around some corner in that building. A few months later she called him up and told him that she was pregnant and that he was the lucky father. To cut a long story short, she got a court settlement of 2 millions pounds and a very generous monthly income for the born child.
