A Saudi woman in her 20s took her ageing husband to court for a divorce, saying he did not keep his word to take her abroad for their honeymoon so he could stay with his camels, a newspaper reported on Monday.
The woman told the judge in the Gulf Kingdom that her husband, in his 70s, promised before marriage to take her to Turkey for their honeymoon but that he lied to her.
“Instead of going to Turkey, he went to the farm and stayed with his camels for nearly 45 days. I now want my freedom so he can stay with his camels as long as he can,” she was quoted by 'Sada' newspaper as telling court.
The paper said the woman left her home and went back to live with her family until the court in the capital Riyadh takes a decision.
