Give me your kidney…. I'll give you a divorce

60-year old in bizarre deal over split from wife

An old Saudi man whose young wife asked for a divorce told her she can have it provided she offers him one of her kidneys.

The 36-year-old wife from Riyadh asked her husband, in his 60s for a divorce following persistent disputes but he insisted on regaining the SR30,000 dowry money he had paid when he married her.

“Because her family’s financial situation is poor, she told him she can not afford paying him,” Alsaudeh newspaper said on Wednesday.

“He then sent a text on her mobile asking her to commit one of her kidneys for him….her brother took her mobile phone to the police and filed a complaint against the old man.”
