A Saudi man has divorced his wife by sending her a phone text message, the Daily Telegraph is reporting.

The man, who was in Iraq, sent his wife the divorce message, then called two relatives to inform them.  A Sharia court checked with the relatives and approved the divorce.


Under Sharia law, a man is allowed to divorce his wife by saying “I divorce you” three times. 

And I thought Nevada had quickie divorces!

I know divorces can be messy and painful, but, dude, this is taking avoidance to the extreme.

I don’t know if married women have property rights under Sharia law, but I doubt this woman even got to keep the phone.
