Want A Divorce? Pick Up The Phone!

A Saudi man has made technology history as being the first person to legally divorce his wife—via text message. According the Sharia (Islamic) law, which is practiced in Saudi Arabia, a man can divorce his wife by saying “I Divorce You”, three times. Only this time, it was upheld that you don’t exactly have to be in the same room to do the deed. He did have the sense to follow up with a phone call to relatives but after pressing ‘send’ he was officially a free agent again. I guess this takes drunk dialing in Saudi Arabia to an entirely different level.
