An Emirati man from Ras Al Khaimah dialed his wife and divorced her over the phone just three days after their marriage, a newspaper reported on Wednesday.
The 20-year-old woman, who has filed a law suit for alimony, told court in the northern emirate that she did not know why her husband had divorced her, Emirat Alyoum Arabic language daily said.
“She told the judge that three days after marriage, her husband left her at night and spent his night at his relatives’ house in another emirate,” it said.
“On the next day, he divorced her by phone without telling her the reason apart from saying that he does not want to be unfair to her.”
The paper said the woman is demanding monthly alimony and a “divorce dowry” of Dh30,000, adding that the personal affairs court in RAK decided to hear the case in September. Her lawyer Mohammed Jadd said his client was surprised by the divorce as the couple had no rifts during their brief marriage life.
