An Arab woman who betrayed her husband with another man and got pregnant decided to tell him the truth and pretended she would commit suicide, prompting him to forgive her. But the husband was also pretending.
To confirm his suspicions that she was still meeting her lover, the European husband lied to his wife that he was travelling abroad. His trick worked as he returned home after a while and caught her with the man.
A court in Dubai decided that the woman and her lover had sex with their consent after hearing testimonies by the housemaid and the building watchman.
It sentenced the wife and her lover to two months in prison and ordered her deportation from the UAE. Emarat Alyoum newspaper, which carried the report, said the wife appealed the sentence but no date was set for the new hearings.
