I divorce thee, I divorce thee, I divorce thee
But does it count if you do it by email?
A court in Dubai is to consider whether a divorce can be carried out by e-mail. The court is set to make its ruling after a man e-mailed his Saudi wife informing her he wanted a divorce. According to an AFP report, under traditional Muslim law a man can divorce a woman simply by telling her. The Register would rather not comment on a matter before the court had the chance to rule on the case. However, we do know someone who was dumped by his "lady friend" by SMS (Short Message Service). It was certainly effective, if nothing else.
