She's a divorced single mum living in London. Wonder if she's on any dating websites that my single mates frequent.

Probably, right now.

Wonder if there will be a reaction to this.

Strange that she didn't even mention let alone criticise the rule that Saudi men can divorce their wives simply by saying "I divorce you" three times...or is it four times, I cannot remember. She just complains about how difficult it is for Saudi women to divorce.

And of course she lives in London, so was free to make such a statement. No the normal thing you would do in Saudi!

that's not actually a saudi specific thing. it applies to all islamic marriages. however most people are married in civil weddings as well in other countries hence it means nothing when the man decides to invoke this "right"..

The thing that gets me about all this is she lives in Acton. I mean, Acton. You'd think she lived somewhere slightly more salubrious....

Just about anywhere has to be better than living in the Middle Ages.
