A Kuwaiti man locked in a tough legal battle to take custody of his three little sons supported his fight with documents proving that his ex-wife knows more than 2,000 men on Facebook and Twitter.
The unnamed man, in his 40s, asked his lawyer to present those documents in court to persuade the judge that his divorcee is ineligible to look after his sons, aged between four and nine years.
“My client gave me papers showing that his ex-wife knows 1,200 men on Facebook and 890 others on Twitter,” his lawyer said.
“He asked me to present these papers to the judge when hearing the custody case and told me exactly :’my wife speaks to 2,000 men…how can a mother look after her children when she knows 2,000 men…this means she is not eligible,” the unidentified judge told Alanba newspaper.
Man reports daughter’s suitor to police
A Saudi taxi driver who is apparently in love with a girl in the same area finally summed up his courage and went to her father to ask to marry her.
Instead of agreeing or even refusing his request, the father phoned the police.
Mediation efforts by scores of dignitaries in the Aziziya neighbourhood in the capital Riyadh failed to persuade the father to drop the complaint.
“He should be an example for all others who will dare come here and ask to marry my daughter,” the father was quoted as saying by Alriyadh newspaper.
It said the young man was rejected on the grounds he is from another tribe and that he has an “improper job.”
“Police released the young man on bail to allow dignitaries to continue their mediation before the case is referred to court,” it said.
