Smoker’s wife can get divorce: Saudi judge

Saudi courts should grant divorce for a woman who discovers that her husband is a smoker and that she is harmed by his habit, a judge in the Gulf Kingdom was reported on Thursday as saying.

“A wife should be granted divorce and separated from her husband in case she discovers that he is a smoker,” judge Ibrahim Al khudairi told the Saudi Arabic language daily Al Watan.

“If the woman tells the court that she has been hurt by her husband’s smoking, like suffering from allergy or chest problems, then she should be divorced.”

But he added:”In long marriage cases, for example, a wife living with her husband for 20 years, she should not be granted a divorce because this means that she has accepted a flawed husband.”
