    Default Islamic Divorce

    Muslim man told Skype divorce joke stands

    A Muslim man who told his wife "I divorce thee" three times in an online Skype messenger conversation has been told the separation stands.
    Wow - though I sympathise with the ruling.

    Yet more oddities from the world of religion. I would comment that one couldn't make it up, but someone obviously has and billions more deluded people were/are taken in by it.

    the seminary issued a fatwa confirming his wife must first remarry another man, consummate the marriage, and then divorce him before she could be allowed to remarry her first husband.
    is this where Dermot Ahern got his advise for his blasphemy bill

    There is something fishy about this story. How did the authorities find out about this? As neither one of them seem to have wanted get divorced they hardly reported themselves?

    My guess would be that one of them mentioned it at mosque and things took off from there.

    Given that this comes from the Telegraph, I'd take it with a very large pinch of salt.

    The Telegraph is a respected broadsheet. Just because you may like the editorial slant and commentary doesn't mean they are printing falsehoods.

    And my name is John F. Kennedy.

    The Telegraph have also printed nonsense like this in the past, not to mention numerous other even more ludicrous headlines which when later examined, were not at all what they seemed.

    At the very least, caution is called for as regards this story.

    Is that all you've got. You don't like the paper so imply it prints lies.
