Women are not always the victims in the Middle East. When they want, they can get their point across.

A Saudi man recently lost part of his nose in a heated argument with his two wives because he threatened to marry a third, reported the Al shams newspaper.

Lately, the debate has been always about husbands beating their wives. A controversial verse in the Koran concerning the issue has been interpreted and dissected. Many fatwas were issued explaining the reasons, conditions and ways to beat women. But wives battering their husbands has not received as much attention. Is there a fatwa allowing women to beat their husbands under certain conditions?

Surprisingly, there is no mention of the Saudi man filing for divorce. He is actually planning to marry a third woman. Well, good luck!
