Default And you thought the BCIS took their time.

AMMAN (Reuters) - A Jordanian woman has received formal divorce papers 42 years after her husband left, and long after she remarried and had children, the official Petra news agency says.

The 68-year-old man divorced his wife verbally in 1962, but only registered his new marital status two weeks ago, when he needed to apply for an official identity card, Petra said.

In Islam, a man is considered divorced from his wife after declaring it to her verbally three times.

The man filed formal divorce papers only after a civil servant dealing with his ID card application asked for proof that he was no longer wed to his former wife.
