New developments in divorce
According to this article, and I heard it on the steam radio today, too (so it must be true)
Getting a quickie divorce has taken on a whole new meaning in Malaysia after it was decided that a man can divorce his wife with a text message.Isn't that fantastic? The World's cuddliest, most perfect, large-scale religion is, with its usual grace, making the sexes even more unequal.
Although such a notification of divorce may seem astonishingly brief to some, under Islamic law men are allowed to divorce their wives simply be saying the word 'talaq' - I divorce you - three times.All this in addition to permitting polygamy. (I understand that even the mention of polyandry is considered distinctly naughty. Better still.) Wow. I've just bought a batch of mobile phones and booked my ticket to Kuala Lumpur.
