Default Saudi Arabia implements electronic tracking system for women


“Why don’t we just install a microchip into our women to track them around?” joked another.“If I need an SMS to let me know my wife is leaving Saudi Arabia, then I’m either married to the wrong woman or need a psychiatrist,” tweeted Hisham.

It's the same here though, isn't it? My husband sponsors me and every time I leave the country, he gets a text message to say I've gone... and another when I come back.

I'd say that a husband who needs an SMS to know his wife left the country is not doing a great job at controlling.

I'd say a husband that needs to "control" his wife hasn't understood marriage very well...
